Wilmer Barrientos, chief of the Operational Strategic Command, reported on Sunday that 78% of the polling stations arranged throughout Venezuela to elect state governors and deputies to legislative councils are in good working order.

"The process is on track," except for some isolated events, he remarked.

Barrientos downplayed the claims of attack on Zulia state governor Pablo Pérez. "It is just a road accident as it usually happens anywhere else in the country," the official said in reference to a car that crashed into the garage of the governor's residency in the early hours of Sunday.

The high-ranking officer is responsible for Plan República, a deployment of military troops to balloting centers and voters.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
