Bolivarian Social Democracy Triumphs in Venezuelan National Assembly Elections – Global Research

On Sunday, Venezuelans voted to elect 277 National Assembly members for five-year terms from January 5, 2021 to January 5, 2026.

An unprecedented total of 14,400 candidates from 107 political parties ran for office.

Two Bolivarian blocs were heavy favorites to win a majority of seats — the ruling United Socialist Party (PSUV) and PPT Homeland for All Party/together with the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV).

Representatives from the UN, CARICOM, African Union, Council of Latin American Electoral Experts (CEELA), Russia, Iran, and other countries were in Venezuela on Sunday.

Former regional presidents Evo Morales, Rafael Correa, and Manuel Zelaya were involved as observers.

In deference to US imperial interests, the EU rejected an invitation to send monitors.

Venezuela’s Bolivarian National Electoral Council (CNE) handles things smoothly and efficiently whenever Venezuelan elections are held.

The Trump regime, Biden/Harris, and Brussels only recognize governments that are subservient to Western interests — at the expense of their own people,
