I read on the book "Stephen Saddow - Silicon Carbide Biotechnology - A Biocompatible Semiconductor for Advanced Biomedical Devices and Applications" that, when working electrode WE potential is greater than the reference electrode RE potential, oxidation can occur at working electrode. Why?

I know only that, when WE potential is greater than the RE potential, the electrons moves from RE to WE.

Thank you so much for your time.
