Candidates for governor of Carabobo state urge people to vote
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.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
