The Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) of Venezuela issued a precautionary measure on behalf of five employees of the National Electoral Council (CNE) to impede “the arrival of violent groups in the vicinity of the CNE” to ensure the physical security of the CNE employees, “the right to free transit and the exercise of the right to work.”
“Due to continued and frequent calls from spokespersons of political and social organizations, we have been exposed to risk situations that endanger and sometimes violate our right to free transit, work and State protection,” applicants (CNE employees) contended.
Based on the application avowed by the TSJ, the calls from the Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) to march to the CNE seeking the authorities to take a stance on the terms for the recall referendum “impede the access of public servants to their workplaces and cause delays, aggravated by the restrictions to the working hours resulting from the electric emergency in the country.”
