MADRID, 27 May. (EUROPEAN PRESS) –
University officials and the Central University of Venezuela (UCV) Election Commission announced the suspension of the election process to be held this Friday, June 9, to renew their mandate.
The suspension was due to “failures in the supply of voting material”, as reported by the House of Works Election Commission and the Venezuelan newspaper ‘La República’.
UCV students demanded the resignation of rector Cecilia García Arocha, as they accused him of “sabotage and suspension of elections”, but she replied that she was ashamed of what had happened, but “it’s not my fault”.
221,000 people from the university community would participate in these elections, which had not been held for more than 15 years.
