Venezuelan former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski announced on Monday that he would contest the election results one more time before the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ).

Capriles told news TV channel Globovisión that he would present as evidence each one of the reports received by opposition campaign team Simón Bolívar.

The opposition leader underlined that the action filed in recent days aimed at challenging the National Electoral Council's decision to refrain from auditing the election results as requested by the opposition.

The leader further explained that "the illegitimacy crisis cannot be solved with violence." "We have an economic and social goal; we want a better life for our people," he added.

Referring to President Nicolás Maduro's so-called "street government," Capriles remarked that such plan does nothing to better off the country, and said, "The street government is government on television."

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.
