Capriles: "Once the results are disclosed, I will call Chávez first of all"
"I am excited and very happy. Something good is going on"
Upon casting his vote on October 7 presidential election, opposition hopeful Henrique Capriles said that once the outcome of the polls is officially announced the first person he would call is current President Hugo Chávez.
"I'm not going to skip this. The first person I'll when the results are known is the president (Hugo Cáavez). Leaders have to lead by example," Capriles told reporters.
Whatever decision expressed by the Venezuelan people "is sacred word," opposition presidential candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski promised on Sunday.
In casting his ballot on Sunday afternoon, Capriles Radonski stressed that in the presidential election held in Venezuela, "Venezuelans will decide." "We will observe whatever the people say," he ratified.
According to the candidate, what has been accomplished in terms of election so far is the result of "the people's will, Venezuelans' expression, vote." "I give a damn to whatever the government tells. I do mind whatever the people tell and right now the people are expressing themselves."
"I am excited and very happy. Something great is going on," he summed up.
Again, the opposition candidate asked for patience. "Let's show the world that we, Venezuelans, are the best."
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."
