Opposition leader: We are not satisfied with the election results
Executive secretary of opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) Ramón Guillermo Aveledo said the results of the gubernatorial vote held on Sunday show that "no one surrenders." He noted that the opposition campaign was conducted under "very difficult circumstances"
Aveledo, however, congratulated the governors reelected in the states of Miranda, Henrique Capriles; Lara, Henri Falcón, and Amazonas, Liborio Guarulla.
Aveledo said the results of the election of state governors show that "no one surrenders." He noted that the opposition campaign was conducted under "very difficult circumstances."
He stressed that "difficult political and economic times are coming," and reiterated that the MUD will "continue to serve the country."
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.
