Venezuela’s President Signals He Won’t Allow Election Monitoring

Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro indicated he won’t allow international observers to monitor December’s congressional elections, as opinion polls show the ruling party losing its majority.

“Venezuela is not and will not be monitored by anyone,” Maduro said at the United Nations in New York on Tuesday in response to a reporter’s question about whether the UN could “monitor” the Dec. 6 vote. “Our country won’t accept it ever.”
