“Despite having submitted in due time and form all the documents and legal requirements requested to be able to participate in the next elections that will take place on Sunday, December 19, this arbitrary maneuver undermines the democratic quality of the institution, and is the corollary of multiple situations that were happening in recent days, “he continued.
“Starting with members of the Electoral Board – made up only of members representing the ruling party -, responsible for the December 19 elections, publicly criticizing our candidate for President,” the notice clarified.
Then, he warned that “what happened tonight is yet another expression of the assault on democracy of which the club has been a victim in recent years. However, we want to express to the members that we will exhaust all political and judicial instances to return to being a club of members and for members ”, stating that the Front will appeal the measure provided.
The last paragraph highlights: “The club can have good or bad presidents. Very good or very bad. But what it cannot have is presidents not elected by the members ”.
