The president of the National Electoral Council (CNE), Diana
Atamaint, revealed that the candidacy of José Tuárez, current president of the
Council of Citizen Participation and Social Control (CPCCS), came after the
candidate challenged arguing falsification of signatures regarding an
affiliation to the Socialist Party.

Atamaint was summoned to give its version on the last elections,
computer problems and the candidacy of Tuárez.

The former president of the Transitional NEC Gustavo Vega
clarified that the organization he presided over did not act with omission or
negligence in the qualification of candidates for the Participation Council.

 He clarified that the CNE
accepted the challenge of Tuárez based on a report from the legal directorate
adhering to the principle of favorability and observing the sworn statement
made. He indicated that an internal graphologist verified the impersonation of
the signature, but that there was no report on the matter. (I)
