To the previous comment: And you are the other side that doesn't want to understand the real position of the private industries like Industrias Polar (producer of Harina Pan and many others basics) that hold the production until all the supermarkets look like empty halls (stories told by people who work there). And other tip to you: Focus on the main opinion written here: "This time, unlike in last October,
the opposition was fully united behind one candidate. But the
opposition had no realistic hopes of winning, as was evident when it began alleging that the election was anyway going to be rigged. Capriles went to the extent of saying that Maduro would not be able to complete his term as President as he lacked the stature to hold such a high office. Even before the voting booths opened, the opposition was talking about a "recall" election to destabilise the Bolivarian revolution"

Whoever wrote this has not even a minimal idea of what Venezuela is going through. Has no idea that this Goverment
has already 14 years and the country is getting poor day by day. Has no idea that our national reserve went down to
1.2mm $ because the Goverment is buying votes of Mercosur and Unasur countries. Has no idea that we dont find
zugar, coffee, harina pan and toilet paper in the supermarkets because the Goverment expropiated the industries and
now they are bankrupt. Yes, excellent history.
