Venezuela begins nomination for presidential candidates

Venezuela’s National Electoral Council (NEC) has launched the process of nominating presidential candidates for the July elections.

“I congratulate all of you who have accepted this call in accordance with the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the laws of our country.

“I also appreciate you all for participating in this electoral process,” said NEC President Elvis Amoroso.”

Opposition candidates, as well as left-wing parties that support the re-election of President Nicolas Maduro, presented the NEC board of directors with their nominations.

“Today we are nominating President Nicolas Maduro for his new mandate,” said Didalco Bolivar, representative of the For Social Democracy party, also known as Podemos.

Earlier, opposition lawmaker Luis Eduardo Martinez registered his candidacy for the Democratic Action Party on the NEC’s website.

The registration of candidates would last until March 25; thereafter, the electoral body will decide whether to accept or decline any candidacies within five days. (Xinhua/NAN)
