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.
Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
