The Attorney General, Tarek William Saab, confirmed this Wednesday that the opposition primary was a fraud, announcing that he had evidence and that he would summon the president of the CNP, Jesús María Casal, his vice president, Mildred Camaro, and others.
In the MP’s statements, Saab called the primary a “buffoon” and “prop theater” intended to “deceive those who came to vote in good faith.”
“The willingness of those who came to express their will was mocked. “This comical act reminded us of the referendum held by Marcos Pérez Jiménez in 1957 in the middle of the dictatorship, in which he was re-elected to the government and received 86.7% of the vote.”
According to him, the CNP has “abandoned” the CNE and confirmed that it heeded his call to open an investigation, referring to the statements of José Brito.
Saab pointed to Brito, but Nelson Rampersad accused the CNP of “fixing the numbers”.

“For this reason, the president and vice president of the National Primary Commission will be investigated: Jesus Maria Casa and Mildred Camaro, respectively. The public complaint with details constitutes evidence; “but we do not rule out calling witnesses to expand beyond them the complaints made during the fraudulent event.”
