21N: Candidate Substitution on Electoral Ballot Ends this Wednesday

The period provided for the political parties of Venezuela to present modifications and/or substitutions of candidates on the electoral ballot ends on Wednesday, September 22.

This was informed by the National Electoral Council (CNE) of Venezuela through a post on its Twitter account, stating that “according to the schedule for the regional and municipal elections, this Wednesday 22 is the deadline for political organizations to submit modifications and/or substitutions of candidatures so that they can be incorporated in the ballot.”

The CNE also informed that after this deadline passes, political parties can make substitutions or modifications in their nominations, but those will not be reflected in the electoral ballot due technical and logistical reasons.

A second phase of substitutions and modifications will begin on September 27 and will end on October 22 for list positions, while for the nominal posts this will continue until November 11.

The Organic Law of Electoral Processes establishes that political parties may substitute candidates in the event of death, resignation, physical or mental disability (duly certified by a competent authority), or for constitutional or legal reasons.
