Opposition governor and candidate for reelection of Carabobo state Henrique Salas Feo and his challenger, pro-government candidate Francisco Ameliach, cast their ballot
Governor Salas Feo, accompanied by his wife and daughter went to La Salle polling station, north of Valencia, the capital of Carabobo state. After he voted, he urged people to go to the polls and ratify their wish of having a better future.
Meanwhile, pro-government candidate Francisco Ameliach, after exercising his right to vote at José Regino Peña voting center, south Valencia, asked people to go to polling stations "to exercise the sacred duty" of vote.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
