The gubernatorial election campaign is slated to end on Thursday at midnight.

On Sunday, all Venezuelans, except for those enrolled in Caracas Libertador municipality, must choose 260 public offices, including 23 state governors and 237 members of state legislatures. With regard to the members of state parliaments, 54 lawmakers must be elected by list nationwide, in addition to 175 legislators by nominal vote and eight indigenous representatives.

Plan República gets ready

The chief of the Operational Strategic Command, Army Major General Wilmer Barrientos, reported on the deployment of military troops to safeguard balloting centers and voters as part of Plan República. Beginning on Wednesday, the troops started to apportion the electoral kit among the schools that will operate as polling stations.

According to Barrientos, the military deployment began on Tuesday in remote sites and all the schools were occupied on Wednesday. On Thursday, networking would be safeguarded together with the National Electoral Council (CNE). On Friday, 36,220 polling stations in the aggregate will be established.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
