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.
