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.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
