Let’s get real here: the level of (arguably justified) mutual mistrust between government and opposition is so great that the ONLY way a CNE decision will have any credibility is if it’s vouched for by the Carter Center. We are fortunate to have observers of the caliber, experience, expertise and impartiality of the Carter Center mission – these people are unspinable. Ask Fujimori if they can be spun.
That’s really all there is to say about this topic. CNE will either give the same results as the Carter Center verifiers, in which case we’ll ALL have to accept its decision, or CNE will give a different set of results, in which case all bets are off.

We’ve been able to hang on for 21 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) closing shop, something we’re looking to avoid at all costs. Your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
