Capriles requests Electoral Council preserving A 14 election material
The opposition leader filed the request with the electoral branch and asked them to keep all information contained in removable memory devices to be stored to their full extent without being subject to any kind of manipulation
In the letter, the opposition leader requested that any application intended to transfer the information contained in the memories be suspended on the basis that such electronic information is part of the electoral material that shall be stored by the National Electoral Council under Article 166, Organic Law on Electoral Processes.
Further, Article 169 provides that in the event of any administrative or legal proceeding, such material shall not be destroyed or altered.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
