Antonio Ledezma, the coordinator of Regions, opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), said that participation in Sunday election of governors increased during the afternoon.

MUD Executive Secretary Ramón Guillermo Aveledo agreed with Ledezma, and noted that the turnout is similar to that in the regional election held in 2008. "There is continuous flow of voters and we are pleased with the turnout."

In a joint press conference, the representatives of the MUD reminded that "much is at stake in Sunday election in Venezuela, including the right to free thinking."

For his part, Ledezma reminded that the electoral security and protection operation Plan República has to "guard voting centers and provide security to all poll workers and election witnesses."

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.
