The gubernatorial vote held in Venezuela on December 16 "was the most atypical election held in Venezuela's democratic history .Money from state-run oil firm Pdvsa, the Venezuelan Electricity Corporation (Corpoelec), and the secret budgetary appropriation of the Ministry of the Interior and Justice was used to buy people's conscience, particularly in Nueva Esparta state, where public funds were squandered as never before," said Morel Rodríguez Ávila, the outgoing opposition governor of Nueva Esparta state.

"I was not defeated by (ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela, PSUV) Carlos Mata Figueroa. These three bodies I just mentioned were the winners. I wish the mistakes of this alleged democracy are corrected so that the bodies monitoring State funds work in order to allocate public funds with honesty and transparency," he added.

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.
