"I'm extremely happy for the people of Miranda state," said Capriles Radonski. He congratulated Henri Falcón (Lara state) and Liborio Guarulla (Amazonas state) for their victory. However, he said he could not feel happy for Venezuela, as pro-government candidates won 20 out of 23 gubernatorial offices.
According to Capriles Radonski, during the election campaign, he and his campaign team faced the heavy machinery of the Executive Office and competed on an uneven playing field. He urged people in Miranda state to keep on fighting.
"The struggle must continue because it has to come a day when we will beat the abuse of power, bribery, and the use of President Hugo Chávez's health condition for electioneering," said Capriles Radonski.
They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
