Cardinal Urosa exhorts electoral commission to be democratic and impartial

.- The Archbishop of Caracas, Cardinal Jorge Urosa Sabino, exhorted the Venezuelan National Electoral Council to adopt a democratic and impartial attitude this Sunday during regional elections.

He emphasized that the council must demonstrate its desire to seek the good of the country and that it must cast aside any bias it holds. The prelate also asked that the National Electoral Council (NEC) make the results of the election known promptly.

"November 23 is a big day for the NEC. On the 23rd they need to show the country that they have a democratic attitude and that they are impartial," the cardinal said on Union Radio.

He also called on all Venezuelans to participate in the electoral process and to vote for candidates who have integrity and experience. "This is about electing the people who will be in positions of the government that are closest to us."

"No voter should be subject to threats, retaliation or vengeance. There must not be any pressure on voters from public organizations or private individuals to make them vote in a certain way," he added.
