Chavez already claiming fraud by the opposition

November 8, 2003

So now Hugo Chavez claims the opposition will commit fraud by having people sign the petitions many times….Now, since the CNE has a majority of pro-Chavez Directors, even if the opposition did this, the duplicate signatures will be invalidated anyway. My feeling is that the strategy might be to slowly begin disqualifying the CNE in order to claim the opposition never gathered sufficient signatures. As pointed out below, the opposition only needs those that voted against Chavez in 1998 and 2000 to go and sign the petition to have a valid petition and a recall referendum in early 2004. Chavez may be getting ready to try to hide the defeat in late November when we top the 3.5 million signature level. The CNE also decided that Chavez can not campaign against the petition drive, which I am sure he will not like and he will not obey. After all, if Chavez does campaign against the petition drive, what can the CNE do to stop him?
