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

Provisional Candidate Registration: Venezuela’s Democratic Unity Roundtable Resorts to Controversial Strategy Amid Election Challenges

The National Electoral Council (CNE) of Venezuela announced on Tuesday the 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, the chosen candidate of María Corina Machado who was disqualified from competing.

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 provisionally registered Edmundo González Urrutia to ensure the preservation of 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 to 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 coalitions, they are determined to continue participating in the electoral process and have their preferred candidate registered for upcoming elections. The CNE reported that a total of 37 political parties, some in coalition, nominated their candidates during this process without facing any restrictions.
