Candidate for ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (Psuv) running for Táchira state governor, José Gregorio Vielma Mora, made an appeal to "seize the timing to become important citizens who will elect their authorities and later request them to do the right thing for Táchira state."

"This is why I am here; asking you eagerly to go out and vote your favorite candidate. Abstention must be reduced; even though it is too high in local elections, such a custom should be broken as it endangers local political criteria," he cautioned.

About the sudden shutdown of the Venezuela-Colombia border on Saturday afternoon, he acknowledged that had not queried into the situation, and talked instead on potential bilateral relations if elected Táchira state governor.

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.
