Sunday September 26, 2010  10:03 PM

The opposition civil association Súmate released its third report on the parliament election (Operation No Impunity). It said that it had received 931 complaints until 6:00 p.m.

Seventy hundred and sixty one out of the 961 complaints (81.74%) were reported by voters; 114 (12.24 percent) by election witnesses and 56 (6.02 percent) by poll workers.

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.
