Aveledo, however, congratulated the governors reelected in the states of Miranda, Henrique Capriles; Lara, Henri Falcón, and Amazonas, Liborio Guarulla.
Aveledo said the results of the election of state governors show that "no one surrenders." He noted that the opposition campaign was conducted under "very difficult circumstances."
He stressed that "difficult political and economic times are coming," and reiterated that the MUD will "continue to serve the country."
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
