She highlighted that the Dec. 6 elections are taking place in an adverse situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has meant a great effort and level of organization.

"At this moment we are sure that we have the technical, operative, technological, and bio sanitary conditions to carry out this democratic party in which we will elect the new National Assembly for the period 2021- 2026," Alfonzo said.
