Chavez Wins in a Landslide

 

Hugo Chavez has taken been returned as President of Venezuela for another 6 years after winning over 60% of the votes in the election on Sunday. His main rival, Manuel Rosales, has conceded defeat after taking less than 40% of the vote.

One taxi driver from a shanty town said while driving through a rich neighborhood, "People round here do not know what it is like in the slums. It is a bigger party than New Year's Eve."

The election had a high turn out and a large number of international observers. Critics of Hugo Chavez claim that he is concentrating power and that Venezuela's resources are being wasted.

The plot thickens ........he's promising even more Socialism ........In your face Georgy boy !!!So can we cut out all the crap and stop throwing the word "dictator" around when we talk of Chavez . I mean how many times does the population have to elect this guy before the US media lay off the "dictator" BS??

If this were an American election I think the NYT would be saying “the population has clearly given the president a “mandate” …

didn’t get the electronic voting machines installed in time. LOL! In your face Dubya.

I just hope Hugo doesn’t go military mad and start wasting his precious resources on jets and tanks. Take care of the people, their education, medical needs and make the country prosper. Invest in the countries infrastructure and industry and create jobs for the people. Make the country great, a nation to be proud of. Above all, listen to the needs of the people; they are the country. Good luck Hugo on another 6 years, the world is watching, make us proud.

actually electronic voting machines are fairly wide spread in S.America. But, IIRC, they are open for scrutiny unlike the diebold machines.
