The opposition denounces that ExClé, which is in charge of the electronic electoral system, manipulated data in favor of the Chavista leader.
Deputy Guillermo Palacios, a member of the Permanent Commission of the Comptroller’s Office of the National Assembly (Parliament) of Venezuela, is direct in his complaints against the Argentine company ExClé, in charge of the electronic electoral system. He accuses her of having favored the regime of Nicolás Maduro for seven years, who seeks to cling to power with the legislative elections of next December.
To begin with, the numerical inconsistency between the official Registry of 20.7 million Venezuelans of the National Electoral Council (CNE) and that of 35 million voters of the same registry that ExClé presents on its website is striking, which shows a form of crime, affirms the deputy in his interview with Clarion underlining that the population of Venezuela barely touches 30 million inhabitants.
With that difference of 15 million voters “Contaminated”, “opaque” and “ghosts” is the margin with which the company hired by the CNE maneuvers in favor of the Chavista and Maduro candidates to keep them in power, “they will always come out winning in any election,” says the deputy when showing the elections carried out since 2004 with the involvement of ExClé.
“Here there has been biometric duplication, that is, repeated numbers of voters are found in the registry and that of course could perfectly lead to fraud. There are contaminated voters and at any time they can be activated in the electronic voting machine, ”says Palacios.
Another irregularity It happened two months ago in the middle of the quarantine. The electoral roll was 19.1 million voters and suddenly rose to 20.7 million people. Those 800,000 new voters who turned 18 years old did not register with the CNE because they were confined to their homes during the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the opposition deputy, the electoral fraud is of such magnitude with the sung list of the winning Chavista candidates, that it is already “impossible” to suspend the December parliamentarians.
The National Assembly, chaired by the opposition Juan Guaidó, decided to initiate the investigation and uncover the black box of the Chavista electoral system also against “thick and thin.”
The Argentine company ExClé SA landed in Venezuela in 2003 at the hands of the Kirchners and Hugo Chávez. It was founded by the brothers Carlos and Guillermo San Agustín. They have offices in Buenos Aires, Asunción and Caracas and deal with biometric systems. From that moment, former minister Jorge Rodríguez was linked to the Argentines since he was mayor of Caracas and head of the CNE. Today Rodríguez is the head of the Chavismo campaign command.
The ExClé company has the monopoly and absolute control of the national electronic electoral system in its three phases: pre-election, voting day with the machines and post-election, combined with the biometric identification of the fingerprint.
With the fingerprint catchers, he also controls the entire state bank, the “national card”, the delivery of the “Clap” food boxes, the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), the Biopago, the Petro cryptocurrency.
In 2017, the Smartmatic company withdrew from the CNE denouncing that a fraud had been committed with a million phantom votes in the election of the National Constituent Assembly chaired by Diosdado Cabello. Then the CNE appointed the Argentine company ExClé to replace it.
The deputy considers that “there is a conspiracy of the regime with its organizations such as the CNE, the TSJ, the ANC, all of them are aligned to produce favorable results for the regime whatever happens and guarantee their permanence in power, which violates political rights. of the Venezuelans ”.
The ExClé company “is part of a generalized corruption that warrants an investigation to clarify the responsibilities,” he adds. “Given the determination of the regime to produce decisions to disadvantage a sector that is the majority of the population and that is a crime,” says Palacios.
Among the characters that the parliamentarians are going to investigate in the CNE’s plot is the military man Carlos Enrique Quintero Cuevas, who is a member of the national electoral board with the main rector Indira Alfonzo Izaguirre, recently sanctioned as corrupt by the US, among others.
On the other hand, the former governor of Aragua, Carlos Tablante, has also joined the complaints. “Everything smells of fraud in the CNE. The Argentine company ExClé maintains millionaire contracts with the Madurista kleptocracy: Banco de Venezuela, Petro, Carnet de la Patria, fingerprint tracker, among others,” said Tablante. And revealed to Clarion that the 40,000 Chinese voting machines hired at $ 500 each “have a premium,” yet to be determined.
