According to Jorge Rodríguez, the head of pro-government election team, Carabobo Command, it is too soon to call abstention in the gubernatorial election of Sunday, December 16.

"We bet on high turnout at the end of the day. Please, go out and vote," he said during the first press conference of the pro-government coalition. He promised that, like in the presidential election, the red machinery would be displayed in the 23 Venezuelan states, in every municipality and parish.

"We are making a millimeter follow-up (...) We will keep on monitoring minute after minute," he said, in reference to the participation of the government sector.

Rodríguez remembered that balloting stations would remain open until 6:00 p.m. and claimed that the procedure is "very fast."

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.
