CNE: 97% of balloting stations get a good start
"It is a quite positive balance, Venezuelans are voting throughout the country"
Tibisay Lucena, the president of the Venezuelan National Electoral Council (CNE), reported that 97% of polling stations are already in place nationwide.
"It is a quite positive balance, Venezuelans are voting throughout the country," Lucena told state-run TV channel VTV.
There were some troubles as to the opening of balloting stations in some states, namely Aragua, Portuguesa and Delta Amacuro, she avowed. "Nevertheless, fortunately, right now, everything is over 90%," she explained.
While she was detained, she was kept blindfolded, she was doused with water and then electric shocks were applied to her arms, breasts and genitals. She was threatened and told that she would be killed and buried in pieces." Gloria Tobón's is one on the list of documented cases reported by Amnesty International in its briefing document to the United Nations Committee Against Torture.
