Supreme Court rejects injunction on fingerprint machines

December 1, 2006

(Elecciones3D)The Supreme Court decided to be magnanimous and at least rule on one of the injunctions on the fingerprint machines, obviously denying it. It ruled that it was not admissible because the injunction was on a “presumption” and not on the matter at hand which was that it was criminalizing the act of voting by introducing the regulation that you have no right to vote if you refuse to use th fingerprint machine.

Of course, the Court did not rule on the other injunction which was based on the fact that it was discriminatory as the fingerprint machines will only be used in eight of the 24 states of Venezuela and only 48% of the voters will have to use it.
