Venezuelan VP: Victory in 20 states is a great gift for Chávez

Venezuela's Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro urged opposition leader Andrés Velásquez "not to make any stupid mistake" and asserted that back in the presidential election held in 1993 "he (Velásquez) did not have the guts to defend his victory, which he won through people's votes, over neoliberalism." Maduro's statements came in response to Velásquez decision to reject the victory of ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) in Bolivar state, within the framework of the gubernatorial election held in Venezuela on Sunday. 

"The arrogance of the right-wing shall be faced with work," Maduro said, adding that the victory of pro-Chávez candidates in 20 states "has been a great gift for President Hugo Chávez. "People responded to the commander with great love."

The vice-president noted that Chávez's allies won the gubernatorial offices in five out of eight states that were ruled by opposition governors. "We must take this victory with humbleness and wisdom. We must see this victory under the premises of the plan for the homeland," he stated.

Maduro also explained that the Second Socialist Plan of the Nation 2013-2019 would take hold in each region of the country.

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.
