“In 18 years of revolution, this ballot is the 24th. The President of the Council of Electoral Specialists of Latin America (CEELA), Nicanor Moscoso, took care to emphasise how the parties of the right as much as those of the left declared themselves satisfied of the 9 official inspections previous to the elections. “This auditing process is particular and unique in the region” he said. “It allows for all the stages of the process, everything that is planned and everything to do with its implementation, to be controlled by technicians and the members of the different political parties in the Electoral National Centre”.
