María Corina Machado's legal representative, Perques Rocha, reported on Tuesday that they went to the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) to find out how the presidential candidate's appeals regarding her alleged disqualification were proceeding, but they were unable to access the file for the second time.


“Today we are assisting the Supreme Court of Justice to review the case file in the Political Administrative Chamber, as a matter of fact and precautionary protection, brought by Maria Corina Machado against the obstacles that prevent her from exercising her political rights and participating as a candidate in the presidential elections,” the lawyer wrote in his X account.

“For the second time, the SPA did not give us access to the file to examine it and not only find out what action was carried out, but in particular, we know from the first source of the supposed compliance that the Controller General of the Comptroller General of the country added that the Administrative Political Chamber asked the Republic to register the administrative background of the case.” .

Rocha noted that the obstacle leaves Machado in a complex position of isolation, preventing him from knowing what judicial action they have taken. Furthermore, he noted that the High Court was jeopardizing compliance with constitutional guarantees of due process and compliance with agreements signed in Barbados.

The legal representative will continue to insist on the tools of constitutional law, and is confident that the truth will prevail in this case.
