In an updated report provided by the First Vice President of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Diosdado Cabello, 104 new names of candidates were announced, winners in the August 8 Open Primary Elections (EPA) of the PSUV, leading up to the 21N regional and municipal mega-elections.
The first vice president of the “red party” announced 104 candidates for municipal mayoralties, to join the 70 previously announced.
“From now on,” said Cabello, “they are no longer candidates for the PSUV, they are candidates for the united Chavista revolutionary force.”
Likewise, he stressed that 165 candidates for mayor’s offices are still pending announcement, expected to come in the next few days.
Alongside the other parties of the Great Patriotic Pole (GPP), the coordination of the electoral alliance is still being reviewed, added Cabello, but by Thursday of this week the lists of PSUV candidates will be finalized
