What are the implications?
First, we must note the combative and bitter tone of Tibisay Lucena cadena whose words are not those of an objective umpire whatsoever. She extended in some explanations which had as sole objective to disparage Capriles and dismiss his claims Whether Lucena is allowed to think so does not give her the right to say it aloud: she is supposed to be an umpire. The only explanation is that she is sending a message from the regime to the opposition: screw you! For those of you that read Spanish I am linking the transcript, which of course was made available to state TV beforehand but not to others I understand.
The second implication is graver: by refusing to visit the voter registry and to check the digital prints Lucena simply admits that any irregularities in the voting process are indeed there. Thus the only way for the opposition is to demand annulment of the election where indeed they can expose the arguments of undue pressure on voters that the CNE claims it cannot receive. In short: an amiable arrangement is now impossible, show of force are becoming and almost unavoidable outcome.
The third implication is even worse: by stonewalling for so long, by trying to dismiss clumsily the opposition reasonable petition, by offering an audit that she cannot possibly lose, by refusing to examine anything where indeed irregularities could be found, Tibisay Lucena is finishing her tenure at the head of the CNE casting a serious doubt about ALL the electoral processes that she presided over. The damage she has done to the CNE in the last two weeks may well be irreparable.
Now on for the "impugnacion".
