Opposition presidential hopeful Henrique Capriles Radonski, the governor of the state of Miranda and leader of Primero Justicia (Justice First) party, made a positive assessment of Venezuelan opposition primaries at noon. "Turnout exceeds our expectations. We are promoting people's participation."
"There is a very high turnout all over Venezuela. People from all sectors are participating. Fear is always defeated by the power of hope, which can always overcome any obstacle that is put in front of us," he highlighted.
Capriles insisted that the secrecy of vote is guaranteed. "We must vote. Everybody should go to the polling stations," he said.
The governor of the state of Miranda reported that he will be at his campaign team headquarters waiting for the election results.
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."
