Isabel Santos, head of the EU mission, said that the participation of that organization in the Venezuelan elections will be impartial and will respect the agreement signed with the electoral body.

On her Twitter account, Santos wrote, ‘Let there be no doubt that we will fulfill our commitment to observe the elections with impartiality, objectivity, independence and non-interference, respecting the administrative agreement signed with the CNE and our code of conduct.’

The official also informed that on October 28, when the regional and local elections campaign begins, she will lead from the city of Caracas the deployment of 46 EU observers throughout Venezuela, while at least 10 members of the mission are already in the country.

The declarations come after CNE President Pedro Calzadilla had a telephone conversation with Santos to ease the tensions aggravated in the last few days, as a result of Borrell’s statements.
