Hezbollah extolls Chávez for his reelection
The Lebanese shi'ite group, an ally with Iran, said that the voice of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez "is one of the rare ones that advocate the establishment of a fair, balanced world system"
Lebanese shi'ite Hezbollah, an ally with Iran, congratulated on Tuesday Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez for his reelection, positive that his victory is because of the "prestige of the Bolivarian revolution" and refusal of the "intervention and domination" policies.
His (President Chávez's) word "is one of the rare ones that advocate the establishment of a fair, balanced world system."
In a press release, the shi'ite group added that Chávez's reelection last October 7 is because of his "firm stance and the prestige of his Bolivarian revolution both at the regional and global levels."
Hezbollah thanked Chávez for his support of the Palestinian cause, according to the notice released after a meeting between a delegation of the shi'ite group and Venezuelan Ambassador to Beirut Zoed Karam.
The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
