UN confirms deployment of experts for elections in Venezuela

United Nations, June 25 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations (UN) confirmed today the deployment of a Panel of Electoral Experts for the upcoming presidential elections in Venezuela.

Four experts will travel to the country at the beginning of July to provide an independent internal report on the general development of the elections scheduled for next July, the spokesman for the Secretary General (António Guterres), Stéphane Dujarric, announced at a press conference.

The news coincides with the completion of a technical evaluation announced weeks ago by the organization’s Secretariat.

In accordance with United Nations regulations, the Electoral Expert Panels do not issue public evaluative statements on the general conduct of the electoral process or its results.

This assistance mechanism, which does not require a specific mandate from the Security Council or the General Assembly, will not issue a public judgment.

Without a mandate, the UN cannot publicly observe or evaluate the elections of a member state, the spokesperson said.

However, the spokesperson clarified that the derived information will be provided to the secretary general.
