Venezuela opposition claims enough signatures to launch recall of Maduro
Venezuelans wait in line to validate their signatures on petitions requesting a referendum to recall President Nicolas Maduro. EFE
The leader of the campaign to recall Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro
said Friday that the opposition has validated more than twice the number of
signatures needed to initiate the process of convening a referendum.
"In total, despite all those obstacles, of everything that happened, of all the
people who were left out, of all who were excluded ... despite everything,
409,313 patriotic Venezuelans managed to validate their signatures,
" two-time presidential candidate Henrique Capriles said.
Capriles detailed the figures with the head of the MUD opposition alliance
at the conclusion of the five days the group was given by electoral authorities
to validate the signatures.
Once the process of signature validation is finalized, the MUD still needs to
get support from 20 percent of registered voters - some 4 million people - to
activate the referendum aimed at ousting Maduro
