Until now the The United Nations ruled out the possibility of sending a mission to observe the electoral process that will take place in Venezuela on November 21. in which governors and mayors will be elected. The reason is because the agency indicated that a formal request for their participation never came.
Stéphane Dujarric, who serves as spokesman for the entity’s secretary general, said that they are not aware of any request in this regard, unlike other previous elections in that country where there have been requests.
«To provide electoral assistance, we usually need a kind of legislative mandate, and I am not aware of any recent demands«, He detailed.
Meanwhile, the The European Union is going to send an observation mission to the Venezuelan elections, invited by the National Electoral Council, although that mission has already aroused criticism from the Government of Nicolás Maduro, which doubts its impartiality.
«I can only remember that the mission fully respects the principles of impartiality, objectivity and independence.«, Specified the EU Foreign Spokesperson, Peter Stano.
