Quico says: Yesterday I interviewed Primero Justicia’s representative to CNE, Juan Carlos Caldera, about the “mystery of the tallysheets” – where the copies of the actas are, and what the opposition has been doing with them. He said Primero Justicia had had witnesses at some 30% of voting tables, and the opposition at more than 80%, without giving me precise figures.
He said the actas are not yet all in one place, and that separate political parties are following different procedures for handling them. He reiterated nobody had found any inconsistencies with CNE results. He expressed a willingness to publish PJ’s acta database, but was not totally committal about it.
There’s much more detail if you listen to the interview audio (in Spanish – MP3 file – 3.6 mb).
