Chávez: Neither Obama nor Romney would produce significant changes
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez expressed interest in anything happening across the region
During a meeting held with his ministers on Monday, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez said that he did not expect much from the next US president, either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, who are trying to pull off victory in the US presidential election on Tuesday. Chávez stated that no matter who wins the election, there would not be any serious changes in the relations between the US and the rest of the region.
President Chávez also expressed his interest in anything happening across the region.
He seized the opportunity to congratulate the Sandinista National Liberation Front for its victory in the presidential election held last Sunday in Nicaragua.
The Venezuelan president said, "There is no doubt about the strengthening of people's governments, the left-wing" in the region. "Socialism is about prioritizing social interests. It is about ending misery, poverty, and exclusion."
