Quijano calls fraud, says ARENA is “prepared for war”

ARENA candidate Norman Quijano is claiming that the election was stolen from him. At a sparsely-attended “victory rally,” he is calling on “international community” to denounce fraud during today’s election and called on the Attorney General to act immediately to intervene. They declared that they would “not allow the elections to be stolen from them the way they were stolen in Venezuela.”

The night is unfolding like a page out of J.J. Rendón’s playbook; Rendón, who managed right-wing presidential candidate Henrique Capriles’ campaign in 2013, has been advising Quijano’s campaign.

Perhaps most concerning, he declared that ARENA was “en pie de guerra” (“prepared for war”) and called on the armed forces to be prepared to defend against the fraud that was being carried out.
