Venezuelan opposition leader and presidential candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski completed on Monday his election campaign in the states of Amazonas and Bolívar, south Venezuela, saying that the end of violence and the beginning of national reconciliation will take hold upon October 7 presidential election.

"We are gathered here today to warn you that in six days we will open the doors to the future of Bolívar (state) and Venezuela (...) Do not vote for me, criminals. Those in favor of violence have another option: those for violence. We will end violence in Venezuela. We will solve that. I have come here to defend your lives and to defend the life of this people," Capriles said.

The opposition leader regretted that although the state of Bolívar produces electricity for the whole country, the state lies in darkness due to the bad functioning of the power service provided locally. "Just like this Government, blackouts will be history after October 7," Capriles remarked.

Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
