Note also that, in the last elections there was no way that Capriles could contest the win ... or anyone else for that matter... because the Venezuelan election system is regarded internationally as so well defined and organized. Hilary was biting her tongue in frustration last time because there was nothing for her to grab on to as foul play. NOW Capriles is setting things up to scream irregularities, just like the chosenite he is.
“From Central America we have gotten information that a group of mercenaries has entered the country, with coordination from the Central American right-wing and some sectors linked to the opposition candidate,” he said.
“They want to kill me because they know they cannot win the elections on April 14th,” he said.
“Through our intelligence agencies, we have recorded conversations among right-wing groups where they discuss using Central American mercenaries to carry out destabilization plans in the country,” he said.
“How are things going down south? You haven’t given me the reports…. Are the reports we are sending you useful?”
“I have the reports, but I haven’t sent them to you yet… Supposedly they have informed the Venezuelan government that there are foreigners interfering in the political situation. Capriles has managed to find safe places so that our people can chill. The team already arrived and they are working together. One group is already working in the streets to disorient the vote.”
“Did you tell them that it should be like we worked in the campaign here? Just be careful. Remember that they have offered their support if they win, and that would be good for us. I don’t know how the other groups that we sent from here are working, but I hope they don’t clash with each other or have conflicts, because they don’t know each other. I will talk to them to see how we should organize the operations there.
“We want to tell the Venezuelan people that they can remain calm. State security forces are after these groups and we hope to identify and neutralize them in the coming days so we can prevent them from generating any turmoil,” he said.
Opinion polls give Maduro a double-digit lead over his opposition rival, Henrique Capriles.
"They were going to cut the electricity to the whole of Merida (state) while I was at the rally," Maduro added.
