Aftermath of Venezuela Elections (José Ignacio Soler, Venezuela, 12/09/15 6:33 am)

For those interested in the latest election developments in Venezuela, there is an article from El País, in English, describing very well the current situation of the opposition's majority in Congress, which would give them substantial power. If this proves to true, the results of the December 6th elections are greater than most people expected.


President Maduro has already asked his ministers to resign and announced that he will disregard some of the laws the Congress would dare to legislate and proclaim. It seems that after the election defeat, chavismo is now facing turbulent inner struggles. However it would be too soon, or naïve, to believe the movement is finished; unfortunately, it still is and will continue to be a influential and leading dominant political force.

JE comments:  The results of two seats remain undetermined, and the difference is crucial.  The MUD opposition coalition is just shy of a super-majority that would allow them to change the constitution and remove ministers and judges.  Perhaps most interesting of all is the implosion and divisiveness of the chavistas.  These are historic times in Venezuela, and I'm extremely happy we have a WAISer in Caracas to keep us updated.
