Chavismo Wins

by Stephen Lendman

Nicolas Maduro elected Venezuela's president. He'll be inaugurated on April 19. His term runs six years until January 2019.

Venezuela's spirit of democracy lives. Celebratory fireworks followed Maduro's win. They were more subdued than last October. Chavez won then by 11 points.

Sunday's results were much closer than expected. Polls had Maduro way ahead. With 99.2% of the vote counted, his victory margin was 1.6%. More on that below.

After his 2006 reelection, Chavez told supporters:

"Today we gave another lesson in dignity to the imperialists. It is another defeat for the empire of Mr. Danger."

"Another defeat for the devil. We will never be a colony of the US again."

"Long live the socialist revolution."
