Venezuela: Presidential Election Postponed till May
Local Editor

The snap presidential election in Venezuela scheduled for 22 April was pushed back by a month, the National Electoral Council [CNE] announced.

Venezuela Presidential Elections

The CNE said the poll would now be held on 20 May.

The move came after an agreement was reached between the government and a small number of opposition parties.

Meanwhile, current President Nicolás Maduro registered to run for a second six-year term.

CNE chief Tibisay Lucena also announced the government had agreed on "electoral guarantees" for the forthcoming elections with a number of opposition parties.

UN chief Antonio Guterres would also be invited to send an observer mission to monitor "all phases of the process".

Traditionally, presidential elections are held in Venezuela in December but in February the CNE announced they would be brought forward to 22 April.

The decision was widely interpreted by government critics as an attempt to steamroll the deeply divided opposition coalition and throw it into disarray.

It comes amid an ever-worsening economic and political crisis which has left many Venezuelans malnourished and led hundreds of thousands to flee the country.
