Zulia state governor hails rising turnout in his state
The Zulia state governor running for reelection urged people to vote
Pablo Pérez, the present Zulia state governor running for reelection, affirmed that turnout in his state "increases as time goes by," which makes him very "happy."
"Zulia will demonstrate today (Sunday) that it is still a democratic state," he underlined. Precisely for this reason, the opposition policymaker made an appeal to vote and "continue giving an example of the democratic principles and values characteristic in the region."
"The history of Zulia is to be written by us, Zulia residents, in golden letters (...) Those in Caracas will not determine for us our political fate," he cautioned.
Three Venezuelans and five Trinidadians will stand trial on January 26 under the suspicion of being involved in alleged Muslim terrorist activities in Venezuela. After nine months in prison, the defendants will appear in court to face charges of terrorism brought against them by the Attorney General Office.
