Venezuelans lead firm that cried foul on Venezuela election

SeattlePI.com Wednesday, 2 August 2017
LONDON (AP) — Electronic voting company Smartmatic was quick to blow the whistle on electoral fraud by the government of Venezuela, one of its oldest clients, because the credibility of the company and possibly its future depended on it. Smartmatic, whose chairman is a former deputy secretary general of the United Nations and current member of Britain's House of Lords, promotes its technology as a way to ensure transparency and participation in elections. "Even in moments of deep political conflict and division, we have been satisfied that the voting process and the count has been completely accurate," CEO Antonio Mugica told reporters while announcing the company had determined the turnout figures for an election in Venezuela held Sunday were tampered with. Smartmatic was created by Venezuelans to provide electronic voting machines used during the administration of the late President Hugo Chavez. Opposition figures, who called for a boycott of the election, disputed the turnout figure, saying they estimated that 2 million to 3 million people cast ballots.
