The CNE forbade this ad on electoral fraud by chavismo

The Venezuelan electoral board this week forbade transmission of this political add that clearly makes allusion to the scare tactics that chavismo uses to force people to vote for them.  Do not be surprised by this: that interdict is all but an open confession by the CNE that it is just the mere election ministry of the regime.




The story is quite simple: she is not voting, doing her laundry. A motor bike stops at the door and tells her she has to go and vote. He even offers a "camarade" to do the laundry and watch over the kids. When they arrive at the voting station he reminds her that she needs to vote for A, that she is in "the list" for some social benefit. Once inside, the heroine steels up and votes B anyway, remembering that the vote is secret.

Why is the CNE upset? Because the CNE HAS NOT DONE ANY INSTITUTIONAL ADVERTISING TO REASSURE THE PUBLIC THAT THE VOTE IS SECRET AS IT IS AN OBJECTIVE OF THE REGIME, TO MAKE BELIEVE THAT MISIONES RECIPIENTS AND PUBLIC VOTERS THAT DO NOT VOTE FOR CHAVEZ/MADURO WILL BE FOUND OUT.

PS: the video goes on to other ads, I cannot break the loop in the embed mode. Sorry

    You're back!! Thank God, we need you there. This is the most important week in Latin American history. Oh, yes! That's what it's all about! You give the example, the rest of LatAm follows, opens their eyes, etc. Maduro keeps feeding populists and we´re all done! Thanks for being there for us!

This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
