Over 80% of polling stations are waiting for 17 million Venezuelans slated to elect state governors and deputies for the legislative council.

Tibisay Lucena, the president of the Venezuelan National Electoral Council (CNE), reported that in the states of Apure, Zulia and Nueva Esparta, more than 90% of balloting stations are in place.

"We have over 50% of balloting stations open," Lucena told state-run TV channel VTV.

The CNE president praised the election as running smoothly. "We are very satisfied," she stressed.
