Venezuela's electoral council accredits Henrique Capriles as governor
"This victory belongs to Miranda's citizens; this victory is for them. You are my strength and my inspiration for life!" Miranda's reelected governor Henrique Capriles Radonski said via social networks
After receiving the certificate, Capriles expressed via social networks, "This victory belongs to Miranda's citizens; this victory is for them. You are my strength and my inspiration for life."
After the first results of the gubernatorial election held on Sunday were announced by the CNE, Capriles stated, "Miranda beat the abuse of power and bribery." Reference was made to the race between him and ruling party candidate Elías Jaua.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
