CARACAS, July 13 (Itar-Tass) — Venezuela’s National Electoral Council has offered the seven candidates running for the presidential office to sign a binding agreement on an unconditional recognition of results of a regular presidential election scheduled for October 7, Tibisay Lucena, the President of the National Electoral Council /CNE/ told a news conference Thursday
She said she had proposed July 17 as the date for signing.
The agreement consists of three provisions – to accept the results of voting unconditionally, to act in strict compliance with the Constitution and the national laws regulating the electoral process, and to observe the principles of peace and mutual respect so as to forestall an outbreak of any violent actions in the country after the election.
