(RT) – In anticipation of the presidential elections in Venezuela, President of Venezuela’s National Electoral Council (CNE), Tibisay Lucena in an interview to RT, addresses the stipulations that ensure the legitimacy of the results and shares her opinion on the campaign against voting.
In addition, Lucena compares the CNE with the electoral organisms of other countries and reflects on the reason for the sanctions imposed against this and other Venezuelan electoral authorities.
The President of the CNE, affirms that the absurd and antidemocratic sanctions against her country, as well as the recent accusations by various regional governments against Caracas are aimed at boycotting the upcoming presidential elections.
“One realizes that these are purely political arguments that have nothing to do with the reality, how can you not accept the results of an election that has not yet been carried out? It is unusual.” Lucena said of the upcoming election process of May 20th.
Lucena pointed out that the countries that prematurely condemn Venezuela are characterized by not having security in their own voting processes since their electoral systems are “fragile”. Venezuela’s electoral system, on the other hand, is “demonstrable, verifiable and monitorable,” she argued.
“We have built an electoral system that is armored against fraud,” said Lucena, explaining that the Venezuelan voting system is 100% automated and the entire electoral process provides guarantees of transparency for all political participants of the country.
The official explained that the means of transmission in Venezuela are audited to ensure the cleanliness of the election results. “There is no country in the world where this type of audit that certifies the purity and transparency of the election results exists,” she said.
