The Government has “won” 85% of all races for Mayors or 210
municipalities. A remarkable result given that the last municipal
elections were done at the peak of Chavez’ popularity in 2000, but I
guess virtual voting is like that.
Meanwhile, the races in Carabobo, Yaracuy and Miranda are close but
with the pro-Chvaez candidate leading in all three.\
For those that will blame abstention, abstention was the same level in
the regional elections in 2000/2001.
Well, now Chavez has oil at $50, 85% of cities, 87% of Governorships.
What will be his excuse in 2006 for thing continuing to deteriorate?
Acts of God?
