Capriles: We will defeat the abuse of power eventually
"I'm extremely happy for the people of Miranda state," said Henrique Capriles Radonski in his first speech after his reelection as governor of Miranda state. He congratuled Henri Falcón (Lara state) and Liborio Guarulla (Amazonas state) on their victory.
