Caracas, Apr 17 – President of Venezuela’s Supreme Court of Justice, Luisa Morales, said today that the opposition should have resort to jurisdictional bodies to notify its electoral nonconformity, instead of calling demonstrations leading to an escalation of violence.
Morales said in a press conference that those leading the opposition are misleading their followers by demanding a manual recount of votes of the presidential elections held on Sunday because this option does not appear in the Constitution
The Venezuelan Constitution includes automated count and the audit of 54 percent of the votes, said Morales.
Therefore, the magistrate urged these people to be prudent and rational because, by demanding the impossible, they are encouraging endless street fight.
She insisted that former presidential candidate Henrique capriles and his collaborators should have present their arguments by legal channels before the Electoral Courtroom or, if extraordinary, to the TSJ Constitutional Courtroom.
