Jun 12, 2020 – Alba Ciudad

This Friday Venezuelan Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), appointed and swore in the directors and alternates who will form the new National Electoral Council (CNE). Indira Alfonzo was elected as the president of the highest electoral body, Rafael Simón Jiménez as vice president, and Tania D’Amelio, Gladys Gutiérrez and José Luis Gutiérrez as principal rectors.

The Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), in a joint sentence appointed the principal and alternate directors of the National Electoral Council (CNE), after declaring the omission of the National Assembly to perform this duty unconstitutional. The sentence indicates that the Constitutional Chamber, given the relevance of the act, delegated the oath to the president of the country’s high court, Justice Maikel Moreno.
