During a political campaign, Capello confirmed that the Chavista regime was ready to win elections “Defend the Revolution.”
Among international observers, the presence of the European Union (EU) stands alone, accepting the invitation of the Venezuelan authorities and sending a mission to monitor the election campaign and the upcoming elections. The European Union, which did not recognize last year’s legislative elections, has not participated in the Venezuelan election process since 2006.

With the exception of Caracas, the work will be in 22 of the 23 states. Amazonas will be the only region to be visited by a group of short-term visitors in the pre-poll days due to logistics and security conditions.
The U.S. government pointed out weeks ago that the EU mission was worthwhile, but insisted that it must have a broader perspective beyond Voting Day.
Brian Nichols, The Under-Secretary of State for the Western Hemisphere commented at a press conference: “A comprehensive overview of all the elements that make up the electoral process needs to be considered. Although I think it would be useful to send a delegation to look into what is happening in the EU, they need to analyze the facts from a broader perspective.
Despite international observers, after the recent election fraud of the Maduro dictatorship, opposition parties continue to demand compliance with democratic standards. This Monday the NGO Súmate urged the National Electoral Council (CNE) to fulfill its role as a guaranteed arbitrator in compliance with the constitution and laws during the media campaign, distributing campaign and information time equally to candidates.
