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

New Candidate Registered for Venezuela’s Presidential Elections: Gonzalez Urrutia Replaces Machado’s Nominee

On Tuesday, the National Electoral Council (CNE) of Venezuela announced that Eduardo Gonzalez Urrutia has been registered as a candidate for the presidential elections on July 28 by the Democratic Unity Roundtable. This registration came after the coalition failed to nominate Corina Yoris, who was chosen by Maria Corina Machado, but was unable to compete due to disqualification.

The Democratic Unitary Platform (PUD) confirmed in a statement that their candidate had not yet been able to be registered for the presidential election, despite requesting an extension from CNE. The PUD expressed disappointment that their candidate was left out without any explanation provided so far.

González Urrutia is an international analyst, diplomat, and former ambassador of Venezuela to Argentina and Algeria. He is one of 13 candidates registered for the elections, including incumbent President Nicolás Maduro. A total of 37 political parties, some in coalition, nominated their candidates during the five-day registration process, according to Elvis Amoroso.

The formula of nominating a provisional candidate in Venezuela is common and aims to secure a spot on the ballot. González Urrutia may be replaced starting next Monday if there are no administrative sanctions or impediments, and the CNE approves the replacement candidacy.
