Maduro Says Probe Underway on 1.5 Million Null Votes in Dec. 6 Elections

CARACAS - Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said Tuesday an inquiry is underway to probe the over 1.5 million null votes in the Dec. 6 parliamentary elections.

"There are some null votes, almost 1,500,000, which are being investigated," said Maduro addressing his supporters at the Miraflores Presidential Palace.

"For example, in one state of an electoral circuit, traditionally a Chavismo stronghold, one of our assembly women loses by 82 votes and there are 15,000 null votes...she is going to seek an in-depth probe into the matter, so that the truth is determined and constitutional corrective measures undertaken," he said.

He also welcomed evidence-backed complaints related to the latest election results, which the opposition coalition won with 112 seats as compared to the ruling party's 55.

Maduro called the opposition win circumstantial and reiterated the "Bolivarian revolution" he leads will overcome this upset and find its way back to new victories.

"Don't think this is going to stay as is - we are going to change the situation and we aren't going to allow the Right to cement its electoral coup, not at all," the president had asserted earlier while speaking to a group of public sector employees.
