Antonio Ledezma, the Mayor of the Metropolitan area of Caracas, and a supportive coordinator of the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) in the gubernatorial election held on December 16, traveled to Bolívar state (south) to hold a meeting with ex-candidate to the governor's office, Andrés Velásquez, and his team, in support Velázquez's complaints against the electoral results. Ledezma asserted that the votes obtained by the opposition candidate outnumber by 6,000 those announced by the National Electoral Council (CNE).

"It is not about speculating (...) More than 80 vote records are missing. He (Velásquez) has already gathered some of them. Such tally sheets account for over 20,000 votes that may reverse the results," explained Ledezma when interviewed on radio.

According to the results announced on Sunday by the CNE, candidate Francisco Rangel Gómez (ruling party's PSUV) attained 43.57% of the votes whereas opposition candidate Andrés Velásquez (MUD) gained 42.34%.
