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.

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
