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.

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.
