Tibisay Lucena, the president of the Venezuelan National Electoral Council (CNE), reported that 97% of polling stations are already in place nationwide.

"It is a quite positive balance, Venezuelans are voting throughout the country," Lucena told state-run TV channel VTV.

There were some troubles as to the opening of balloting stations in some states, namely Aragua, Portuguesa and Delta Amacuro, she avowed. "Nevertheless, fortunately, right now, everything is over 90%," she explained.

Is protest over?

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.
