With "the command hammer of Mercosur" in his hand and promising to be "the first Chavista president of additional one thousand who there will be in the history," Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro encouraged government supporters to visit "house after house" pro-government voters who refrained from casting their ballots in the last presidential election.

The purpose is "to pique them for the battle for the homeland" and make them vote in the upcoming local polls of December 8.

"Many fellow citizens would rather stay at home out of sadness. That happened here. I have the names. They are revolutionary fellow citizens overwhelmed by sorrow," the president said at the end of the so-called Street Government, in Apure state.

Clamoring for "fair trial"

The president lamented that the opposition, after claiming fraud in the presidential election "and launching its fascist hordes" to the streets "and causing quite a few killings, now are asking for indulgence." In this regard, he strongly recommended taking a final stance.

Alarmed because of the emotional breakdown suffered by his ally and his destiny; Fidel Castro requested asylum for deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in Madrid back on April 11, 2002. "The story had been much darker and more entangled than what some people's imagination has wanted to believe in and disclose," former Spain's President, José María Aznar, upholds in his autograph book published by late 2013.
