After 10 days of the shortest and most intense presidential campaign in the history of Venezuela, today ends with a promise of a tide of voters this Sunday, which will define if whether they will be represented by the government candidate and president in charge, Nicolas Maduro, or by his opponent, the opposition candidate Henrique Capriles.
Several surveys have placed as popular favorite, to Maduro, who has used the image of Chavez to lift his campaign; however in recent days, at least one survey has indicated that Maduro’s advantage over Capriles, who competes for the second time by president, has been reduced.
Capriles, from the state of Apure, where he began his last campaign day, said that his victory would mean a recovery of the national economy, which, among other things, is currently facing a high inflation and lack of foreign income. “We are the guarantee of our economic recovery in our Venezuela,” said the opposition candidate.
As for Maduro, in an interview with regional media, broadcasted on state television, said that he is certain of his victory. “Even the stones say I am going to win this,” said the government candidate, who plans to finish his campaign in Caracas.
