María Corina Machado, the Deputy-elect for central Miranda state termed "irresponsible" and "unacceptable" that the National Electoral Council (CNE) "boasts about having the most cutting-edge system in the world, but provides the results the day after the election."

She explained that the CNE "gave no numbers, but some names; gave numbers, no final percentages and this is disrespect for men and women in the contest as nominal candidates."

She noted that President Hugo Chávez "turned the election to the National Assembly into a plebiscite and lost."

"It is very clear. Venezuela said no to Cuban-like communism; Venezuela said no to a way towards democracy and now we have the legitimacy of citizens' votes; we are the people's representatives."

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.
