Wielding his newly expanded prestige, Pompeyo Márquez says the opposition should accept the reparos methods announced by CNE. His reasoning is Janette’s – yes they’ll try to cheat, but we should go for it anyway.
So the opposition does seem minded to play ball on the repairs, but it does seem a bit premature to take a position so soon. Amazingly, even today, going on five months after the signature drive, CNE has still not published its databases, or announced the exact detail of the reparos process (how many tables per signing center, etc.) Decisions are never ever final with these guys.
