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.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
