CNE hands over 95% of the tally
María Oteyza, a representative of the opposition alliance, noted that votes abroad and manual votes are yet to be counted
On behalf of the National Electoral Council (CNE), Luis Emilio Rondón delivered on Sunday, after 8:00 p.m. 95% of the reviewed and counted votes of the primaries of the Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) to the Electoral Committee of the opposition alliance with an irreversible trend.
MUD representative María Oteyza cautioned that no results would be disclosed provided that all balloting stations are closed and the overseas results are received.
"The Electoral Committee will release the results once all balloting stations are closed," she emphasized.
Oteiza thanked the CNE for its work and praised citizens for being the leading characters in the election day.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
