VENEZUELA-CRISIS-ELECTORAL COUNCIL-LUCENA

The head of the National Electoral Council (CNE), Tibisay Lucena (C), offers a press conference in Caracas on August 2, 2017 during which she denied allegations that the turnout figure over Venezuela's new assembly was manipulated. The legitimacy of a powerful new assembly in Venezuela being sworn in on Wednesday was thrown further into question when the voting technology firm involved in its election said the turnout figure was "manipulated." Lucena, an ally of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, had said there had been "extraordinary turnout" of more than eight million voters, 41.5 percent of the electorate. / AFP PHOTO / Federico PARRA
