MUD successfully registers Edmundo González Urrutia as candidate for 2024 Venezuela Elections

On Tuesday, the National Electoral Council (CNE) of Venezuela announced the provisional registration of Eduardo González Urrutia as a candidate for the presidential elections on July 28 by the Democratic Unity Roundtable. This decision came after the coalition failed to nominate Corina Yoris, who was disqualified from competing, and was unable to register her as a candidate.

The PUD, in a statement, confirmed the provisional registration of Edmundo González Urrutia and explained that his candidacy could not be officially registered due to administrative obstacles. The coalition had requested an extension from CNE to register their candidate within the expected period, but encountered barriers in accessing the system.

Despite efforts to register Yoris throughout the process, the coalition acknowledged that they had exhausted all avenues to do so by the deadline. As a result, they decided to provisionally register Edmundo González Urrutia to ensure their political rights until they are able to register their preferred candidate. This decision was made in order to continue participating in the electoral process and contest the elections in 2024.

The practice of nominating a provisional candidate is common in Venezuela and is intended to secure a place on the ballot. Despite challenges faced by opposition parties such as Maria Corina Machado’s coalition, they are determined to continue participating in democratic processes and have their preferred candidates registered for upcoming elections.
