Tania D’Amelio, chief rector of the National Electoral Council (CNE) and chair of the National Electoral Board (JNE), said Friday that 99 percent of the vote counts will be in the regional and municipal elections this Sunday.
In a televised meeting, the Returning Officer pointed out that 99 percent of the more than 30,000 ballot tables set up in 14,000 centers across South America were installed.
“On November 21, the tables will be set and at 5:00 am the people will be the heroes of this election campaign.”
“The people of Venezuela decide that it will bring peace and the country back together,” he said.
D’Amelio recalled that the election campaign ended last Thursday and that it was characterized by “reunification” and “happiness”. It can be seen and observed in all media, he said.
More than 21,000,000 citizens are invited to vote this Sunday to elect 23 governors, 335 mayors, 253 legislators and 2,471 councilors.
About 70,000 candidates from all political forces in South America are participating, including 37 national political parties and 43 regional organizations.
On the other hand, CNE reported that the Election Results Transfer Network (Telecommunications Phase 1) has been audited for tomorrow’s elections on Sunday.
In a series of messages posted on his official Twitter account, he described the “participation of political auditors, CNE technicians, representatives of telecommunications companies (external providers), members of election monitoring NGOs and international observers.”
“It should be noted that the results exchange network does not use the Internet as a communication channel, but rather as an exclusive and encrypted network for the election event,” the election agency pointed out.
He stressed that all the processes carried out by the technical experts of the political organizations PSUV, MUD, MAS, PPT, UNT and Compa were verified.
