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.

According to official statistics, the number of Venezuelans contracting HIV/AIDS every year amounts to 11,699; and as per Ministry of Health figures 43,805 people receive free antiretroviral medications.  But Jhonatan Rodríguez, the president of ONG StopVIH, claims that these figures date back to March 2012, and that they are quoted as current figures.
