Nogal M., Juan Carlos Delfino B., Elvis E. Hidrobo A., Rosalba Gil, Carlos R. Quintero C., Acme C. Nogal M., Juan Carlos Delfino B."
The appointment of the new members of the Electoral Power arose after the resignation of the members of the CNE's board of directors last June. Subsequently, on June 15, the electoral process began and ended this Thursday with the swearing in of the 15 rectors for a period of seven years.
The election was made from a total of 104 nominees, whose list was debated and analyzed by the political blocs of the country.
The President of the Venezuelan Parliament noted that this CNE will be the one that "will successfully carry out the next electoral event to elect the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela."
For his part, the Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro said that the new CNE board that will take office next Friday is made up of "good, professional, balanced men and women, and it is up to them to organize the electoral processes for the next seven years."
