President Hugo Chávez has just been reelected as President of Venezuela by more than one million votes. According to the Electoral Board, these are the results with 90% of the vote counted, 19.9% abstention:
Hugo Chávez Frías 54.42% 7.444.082 votes
Henrique Capriles Radonzky 44.97% 6.151.594 votes
I am in no mood to analyze, abstention was incredibly low, I understand Zulia went badly, it was when that State started coming in that the difference began opening up. Abstention is simply incredible, never had been that low. Remember this graph? It had a lot to do with it, but it was not the full story.
