José Tuárez’s candidacy was qualified without a graphological report, according to the former president of the transitory NEC
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)
