"I'm extremely happy for the people of Miranda state," said Henrique Capriles Radonski in his first speech after his reelection as governor of Miranda state. He congratuled Henri Falcón (Lara state) and Liborio Guarulla (Amazonas state) on their victory. However, he said he could not feel happy for Venezuela, as pro-government candidates won 20 out of 23 gubernatorial offices
"I'm extremely happy for the people of Miranda state," said Capriles Radonski. He congratulated Henri Falcón (Lara state) and Liborio Guarulla (Amazonas state) for their victory. However, he said he could not feel happy for Venezuela, as pro-government candidates won 20 out of 23 gubernatorial offices.
According to Capriles Radonski, during the election campaign, he and his campaign team faced the heavy machinery of the Executive Office and competed on an uneven playing field. He urged people in Miranda state to keep on fighting.
"The struggle must continue because it has to come a day when we will beat the abuse of power, bribery, and the use of President Hugo Chávez's health condition for electioneering," said Capriles Radonski.
A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
