Venezuela's electoral council accredits Henrique Capriles as governor
"This victory belongs to Miranda's citizens; this victory is for them. You are my strength and my inspiration for life!" Miranda's reelected governor Henrique Capriles Radonski said via social networks
After receiving the certificate, Capriles expressed via social networks, "This victory belongs to Miranda's citizens; this victory is for them. You are my strength and my inspiration for life."
After the first results of the gubernatorial election held on Sunday were announced by the CNE, Capriles stated, "Miranda beat the abuse of power and bribery." Reference was made to the race between him and ruling party candidate Elías Jaua.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
