Wilmer Barrientos, chief of the Operational Strategic Command, reported on Sunday that 78% of the polling stations arranged throughout Venezuela to elect state governors and deputies to legislative councils are in good working order.

"The process is on track," except for some isolated events, he remarked.

Barrientos downplayed the claims of attack on Zulia state governor Pablo Pérez. "It is just a road accident as it usually happens anywhere else in the country," the official said in reference to a car that crashed into the garage of the governor's residency in the early hours of Sunday.

The high-ranking officer is responsible for Plan República, a deployment of military troops to balloting centers and voters.

Gagging Twitter users

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
