The rector of the electoral body, Roberto Picon, has unfolded this week that those organizations were summoned to participate in the regional and municipal elections to be held next November 21.

Likewise, Picon underscored that the five main rectors of the CNE agree on those elections must be developed with a wide participation of citizens, political actors and a greater international recognition.

He informed that a modification of the National and International Observation Regulations is currently being studied, ‘we are assessing different proposals in order to get as close as possible to the capacities that the missions had in 2005 and 2006.’

Meanwhile, over 160,500 new voters registered their data during the registration and updating of the electoral registry, which since June 1st the CNE has been active in the 23 states and the Capital District, and will continue until July 15.
