For the first time in four years, every major opposition party in Venezuela participated in elections. For the fifth time in four years, the left won in a landslide. Voters elected 23 governors, 335 mayors, 253 state legislators, and 2,471 municipal councilors. The governing United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) won at least 19 of 23 governorships (one race remains too close to call) and the Caracas mayoralty in the November 21 “mega-elections.” Of the 335 mayoral races, the vote count has been completed in 322 of them, with PSUV and its coalition taking 205, opposition coalitions 96, and other parties 21. Over 70,000 candidates ran for these 3,082 offices, and 90% of the vote was counted and verified within hours of polls closing. Turnout was 42.2%, eleven points higher than last year’s parliamentary elections.


Here’s why chavismo, the movement behind Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution, won:

Of course the left won, they’ve already destroyed the country.

You left out a link to the copypasta above. I found the article you quoted, but won't even provide a link, because of the last sentence in it:

"Leonardo Flores is a Latin American policy analyst and campaigner with CODEPINK."

You didn't even post the five reasons.


If the Venezuelan elite weren't such assholes, they'd still be in power.
Venezuelans actually prefer having to sell their kids for food
