On Tuesday, the National Assembly (NA) appointed the members of the Preliminary Commission in charge of designating the Electoral Nominations Committee. Ángel Medina, Luis Aquiles Moreno, Stalin González, Piero Mouron, Olivia Lozano, Franklin Duarte, William Gil, Nosliu Rodríguez and Jesús Montilla were appointed to the committee that will decide which will be the new board of the National Electoral Council (NEC).
President (E) Juan Guaidó confirmed that this process will lead to free presidential elections. In addition, he clarified that “the dictatorship has recognized that only Parliament can designate the CNE.”
The President-in-charge of the Parliament also made a plea not to fall into disinformation and confusion. “This new CNE is to call free presidential elections”, he said.
Guaidó said: “The origin of the problem is that the people were denied a free presidential election in 2018. Therefore, the only solution is a way out of the dictatorship and truly free presidential elections with a new CNE, designated by the NA as dictated by our constitution.
Guaidó stressed that the process of free elections will begin once the usurpation ceases so that the election of a new Venezuelan president will be truly free and with autonomous powers. “It won’t be a gift, it will be a conquest”, he concluded.
