Chávez re-elected President of Venezuela

As The Guardian goes to press, it has been confirmed that Hugo Chávez has been re-elected as president of Venezuela for another six-year term. With over 90 per cent of ballots counted, the vote favoured Chávez by a margin of 54.42 per cent to 44.97 per cent for the right-wing opposition candidate, Henrique Capriles. National Electoral Council president Tibisay Lucena announced the results and noted a high participation of almost 81 per cent. The Communist Party of Australia congratulates the left and progressive forces on the results which confirm the popularity of the Bolivarian Revolution among the people of Venezuela. A full report will appear in the next issue of The Guardian.
