Candidates for governor of Carabobo state urge people to vote
Opposition governor and candidate for reelection of Carabobo state Henrique Salas Feo and his challenger, pro-government candidate Francisco Ameliach, cast their ballot
Governor Salas Feo, accompanied by his wife and daughter went to La Salle polling station, north of Valencia, the capital of Carabobo state. After he voted, he urged people to go to the polls and ratify their wish of having a better future.
Meanwhile, pro-government candidate Francisco Ameliach, after exercising his right to vote at José Regino Peña voting center, south Valencia, asked people to go to polling stations "to exercise the sacred duty" of vote.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
