Why Chavismo won, again, in Venezuela's October elections.


The is the opposition that refused to recognize the legitimacy of the government for the last 18 years, that has cried fraud at every election - except for the ones it wins, and as recently as the last few months, sought to violently overthrow the government again. This is an opposition with deep legitimacy problems itself.

Caracas-based political analyst Lucas Koerner reports on Chavismo's victory in Venezuela's October gubernatorial elections - as voters overwhelmingly rejected the opposition right's campaign of violence and instability, and explains why the PSUV party must look beyond its enemies, domestic and international, to address the country's deep economic crisis.

Lucas wrote the piece Why Chavismo Won for Venezuelanalysis.
