The disguise of the "best elections and most democratic in the world" has only lasted a few days. Bolivarian Intelligence Service Agents (Sebin) have arrested Omar Fernandez today, Mayor elected by the Municipality Arzobispo Chacón in Canaua (Mérida). The political police have also taken four members of the team, including three women, who intended to advance the transition with the Chavista municipal leaders.
The Mayor elected tried to prevent revolutionaries from plundering the mayor's office and take a load of medicines, something that is happening in other points in the country. Fernández is the leader of the table of the democratic unity that came victorious last Sunday despite the lack of democratic conditions conferred by the Electoral Mission of the European Union (EU).
"We denounce arbitrary detention by Sebin de Omar Fernández, Mayor elected. We demanded his freedom and respect for the will of the merides who chose him with his vote on 21-N!", Unit Venezuela said. Lawyers of the Organization Criminal Forum, who sails by political prisoners, accompanies the detainees facing the court hearing that marks the law.
The detention of Fernandez joins the protests that today continue in Barinas, where opponents demand that it be declared Governor Freddy Superlano, a folk leader (VP) that would have been imposed, according to the minutes, to Argenis Chávez, brother of the "Supreme Commander ". The Chávez family has ruled Barinas, cradle of the revolution, for two decades.
"We continue to exercise the necessary pressure in healthy peace, there is nothing more forceful at this moment to snatch their speech, we do not fall into their traps," said Superlano before his followers, mobilized since Tuesday.
The opposition has asked the EU mission not to go from Barinas until official proclamation is done. Rocío San Miguel, President of the NGO Citizen Control, has denounced that the three minutes that are missing for accounting are retained by the commander of the military zone of that part of the country.
The paralysis of the count has forced the intervention of the two opponent rectors of the National Electoral Council (CNE). "I am aware that the delay in the totalization of the minutes is unjustifiable and I will be very pending to close this chapter at all respect for the will of the Barinés people," Enrique Márquez pronounced. The final count, after five days of the elections, is now in the hands of the Electoral Board.
Incidents similar to Canagua are repeated in other mayors, as in San Juan de los Morros, when the possession of the oppositional mayor, Sulme Ávila, was interrupted by masked agents of the General Directorate of Military Counterintelligence (DGCIM).
"It is a state terrorism against the popular will of the inhabitants of our South Peoples," Certified Héctor Azuaje, VP coordinator in Mérida.
In the municipality Caraqueño de Baruta, where the opposition triumphed, his leaders reported that the government had ordered to withdraw the vaccination campaign against the Coronavirus.
The revolutionary attachment happens when Nicolás Maduro has traveled to Cuba by surprise to participate in the tributes to Fidel Castro, after five years of his death. Meanwhile, in Venezuela, his number two, Diosdado Cabello, has threatened to stop the mayors: "The mayor is prisoner, they do not have to swallow immunity of any kind, I am imprisoned and is prisoner for destroying goods from the state, for attacking the property Private. I'm not threatening anyone, but here so there is peace there must be justice. "
Chavismo has taken advantage of alleged attacks on community stations to attack the new mayors, who try to defend the municipal dependencies of the usual looting that precedes its delivery to the new administration.
"Maduro has a great dilemma with Barinas: recognize that symbolic defeat and demonstrate against international observers that (when they do not give them disabled, stolen cards, violence, censorship ...) also steal votes on the day of the election, as happened in Bolivar in 2017, "said opponent leader Freddy Guevara. Four years ago, Chavismo falsified voting minutes to impose a general as governor of Bolívar, the border state with Brazil where the mining arc is located and where the polemic gold mines are exploited.Date Of Update: 26 November 2021, 18:13
