About Us

Monitoreo Ciudadano (Citizen Monitoring) is a citizen initiative and NGO dedicated to monitoring and exposing the abuse of power and public resources by the Venezuelan government in efforts to illegally influence Venezuelan elections. President Hugo Chávez has in recent months abused both State TV and obligatory Nationwide Blanket Broadcasts (cadena nacional) on multiple occasions to support his candidacy for president and attack his opponent in the run-up to October 2012 elections.

Citizen Monitoring uses the Twitter hashtag #AbusoPoder (Abuse of Power) to register complaints.
