Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is facing a united and well-funded opposition as he runs for his third full term as president. Hear about the outcome of the October 7 election--who won, who votes, how the voting system works, who funds the elections. What does the losing party plan to do? What is likely to occur in the December regional elections?
Speakers include Susan Scott of Inverness, who is part of the National Lawyers Guild international observer team scheduled to monitor the election. Former Venezuelan Consul General Martin Sanchez, recently returned from a six-week visit to his homeland, will discuss the aspirations of the populace.
