Interviews from Quito – Voting in Venezuela

Today our host Gregory Wilpert interviews Tibisay Lucena, the President of the National Electoral Council of Venezuela. With reference to the low electoral participation of large segments of the population of Latin America, Wilpert observes that it is not enough to have clean, fair elections if the people don’t go to the polls. To what extent does an electoral gap exist? What historical and sociopolitical factors give rise to it? What can be done about it? What has been done to reduce this gap in Venezuela? What protects Venezuela’s system from voter fraud? and What can the United States and other northern countries learn from Venezuela’s experience? Much more than they might think. teleSUR
