Guaidó returns to his bastion to promote his consultation, which continues to accumulate doubts

Caracas, Dec 9 (EFE) .- Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó took to the streets of the wealthy Caracas sector of Chacao on Wednesday, the great bastion of Chavez detractors, to promote the popular consultation, which continues to be surrounded by many doubts and with which he aspires to reply to the legislative sessions on Sunday. The technical problems continue to mark the virtual voting that began on Monday, which will last until Saturday and which has prevented the organizers from informing about how many people have gone to the two applications used -Telegram and Voatz- in order to answer the three questions of the query. “There are millions of Venezuelans who continue to move forward despite the dark times we are living. Each Venezuelan who does not give up is the certainty of the future that we can and will build. On 12-D we raised our voices in the streets for that possible future”, Guaidó wrote on his Twitter account about December 12, when the virtual voting concludes and the vote can be personally cast. ITINERANT INFORMATION TABLES As part of the attempt to resolve doubts, the opposition sector that promotes the consultation has installed traveling tables that disseminate information and help those who wish to do so in the complex voting system, which includes sending a photo of the identity card through applications. In this sense, Blanca Mármol, member of the Organizing Committee of the Consultation, explained in a press conference that “today there is a special boost to itinerant participation, that is, itinerant help for participation in the electronic, virtual way” . At one of those tables, located in front of the Chacao subway station, was the opposition deputy Freddy Guevara, who distributed informational flyers. Guaidó was also at the entrance of the subway, who greeted several passers-by in that sector, although he did not go to other areas of the capital more akin to Chavismo. However, the opposition did not report the location of the itinerant tables or how many were arranged in each of the 23 states that make up the Venezuelan territory. ATTACKS BY THE GOVERNMENT OF MADURO REPORTED For his part, the coordinator of the political command of the popular consultation, Emilio Graterón, explained to Efe that they have received “attacks by the regime of (Nicolás) Maduro” on the voting platforms. “What it has done is to try to block the access or interaction of people who are in Venezuela. For example, the Maduro regime tried to prevent the interaction of Voatz from entering the servers that are in Venezuela,” he explained. Graterón added that those problems have been solved and were “attacks” that they were waiting for, “in the same way that they have tried several times to block the website” that coordinates the vote of the consultation. In this sense, he explained that they still cannot project the number of people who will vote for the “enormous response” that has occurred both in the country and among migrants abroad. “It is difficult to predict how many Venezuelans will participate in the popular consultation,” he stressed. During these first days of virtual voting and in the face of this undetermined number of participants, Graterón commented that there has been a “collapse” in the applications “due to the number of people who have tried to participate at the same time.” “We believe that the participation will be very large, it will be massive and I would not dare to make a projection because it would not be realistic with respect to the behavior that people have had,” he concluded. CONSULTATION ABOUT THE ELECTIONS Venezuelans who vote must respond if they reject the legislative elections in which Chavismo, which has governed since 1999, took majority control of Parliament. Likewise, they are asked if they demand “the cessation of the usurpation of the Presidency by Nicolás Maduro and call for the holding of free, fair and verifiable presidential and parliamentary elections.” Finally, the third point asks the Venezuelans if they “order” to take the necessary steps before the international community to activate cooperation, support and assistance that allow them to rescue “democracy,” address the humanitarian crisis and protect the people from crimes of It hurts humanity”. Citizens will be able to answer, solely and without nuances, with a “yes” or a “no”. (c) EFE Agency
