Three leading Venezuelan opposition parties have said they will not take part in December’s municipal elections.
Leaders from the Justice First, Popular Will and Democratic Action parties say the electoral system is biased, saying the government of Nicolás Maduro had rigged elections in 2013 and earlier this month.
Meanwhile, President Maduro insists the Venezuelan system is entirely trustworthy as the deadline for enrolling mayoral candidates for the December 10 vote expired on Monday.
