Caracas, March 1 (RHC)-- In Venezuela, candidates for the upcoming presidential elections have agreed to delay the elections until the second half of May, but a date has yet to be decided.
Campaign chiefs, Luis Romero for candidate Henri Falcon, and Jorge Rodriguez for President Nicolas Maduro, signed an agreement guaranteeing that all parties would respect the results of the upcoming presidential elections and delay the election until the second half of May from the previous April 22nd date.
Romero and Rodriguez attended a press conference at the country’s National Election Council, or CNE, where its chief Tibisay Lucena announced the agreement and said a date would be set as part of upcoming discussions between the government and opposition parties.
“We invite all organizations with political ends to participate in a dialogue of electoral guarantees," Lucena told reporters at her council’s headquarters as the two representatives signed the agreement.
