Venezuelans Vote Again
Venezuela has the world's best electoral system.
by Stephen Lendman
In America, money power controls elections. People have no say. Each party replicates the other. Venezuela is different.
Voters take full advantage. They choose real democrats over fake ones. It shows in how Venezuelans are governed.
On October 7, they reelected Chavez overwhelmingly. On December 16, they'll vote again in regional elections. At stake are 23 regional governorships and 229 local legislative positions.
Currently, Chavez's United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) controls 17 of 23 states. Key opposition candidates represent the Roundtable of Democratic Unity (MUD) coalition.
Small parties have their own candidates. On October 6, they didn't get enough support to matter. On December 16, they won't likely fare better.
