MUD successfully registers Edmundo González Urrutia as candidate for 2024 Venezuela Elections

In a surprising turn of events, the National Electoral Council (CNE) of Venezuela announced on Tuesday that Eduardo González Urrutia has been provisionally registered as a candidate for the presidential elections on July 28 by the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD). This decision came after the coalition failed to nominate Corina Yoris, who was disqualified from competing, as their chosen candidate.

The provisional registration of González Urrutia brings the total number of candidates to 13 for the upcoming elections, including the current president Nicolás Maduro. The CNE reported that a total of 37 political parties, some in coalition, nominated their candidates during the process without facing any restrictions. The possibility of replacing González Urrutia with another candidate will be considered starting next Monday, provided that there are no legal or administrative obstacles.

Despite challenges faced by the opposition coalition, they are determined to continue participating in the electoral process and to have their preferred candidate registered for the upcoming elections. The practice of nominating a provisional candidate is common in Venezuela and is intended to secure a place on the ballot.
