There is no "constitutional or legal" reason, as well as no argument to justify not holding elections for governors this year, said Venezuelan constitutional lawyer Hermánn Escarrá.
Specifically, he rejected the need to focus attention on the economic crisis, as argued by the Venezuelan government, to set aside regional elections this year.
"That would not be the best of arguments. We have an electoral power and it is up to them to always specify within the framework of the Constitution the period of the consultation,” Escarrá said “Vladímir a la 1,” a talk show aired on private TV news channel Globovisión.
"There is neither constitutional nor legal (obstacle), I do not know if of a technical nature, but there is no obstacle," he restated.
