Towards the Recall Election of Chavez
So far, so good

Friday 28, 4 PM

Apparently the incidents this morning must have been solved well. I did not see anything on the news at lunch time. The day seems to be going without any problem except for delays and such.

After lunch I stopped by Higueron, a popular neighborhood of San Felipe. The sign up tables were inside a court yard, National guards and policemen in rather large numbers outside guarding access. But people were coming in and out without trouble. Señora Altagracia told me that this morning when she left home a lot of people were lining up to sign, in the erstwhile chavista stronghold of San Felipe.

In Monagas state they have already run out of forms to fill. The electoral board only gives a determined numbers of forms each day and Monagas is the first state to report running out of forms. As far as I know during the chavista effort of last week no state reported a shortage of forms. Zulia governor also has announced that in large sectors of the state they will run out of forms before 6 PM. Zulia is our largest electoral state.

Even the state TV, a.k.a. Discovery Chavez, was in a subdued mood today, though their advertisements were rather harsh to scare people away from signing up. Does not seem to work so far.

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

3)COMMENT RULES:
Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
