What you need to know — Venezuela regional elections

Capriles believes this is part of a government strategy to discourage people in a state that has traditionally voted for the opposition from heading to the polls.

International guests who are in Venezuela for the vote, have presented a preliminary report acknowledging the reliability of the system used by the National Electoral Council, CNE.

For the opposition, these elections are a chance to win some governorships and test the ground ahead of presidential elections scheduled for next year. In fact, Maduro has warned that governors must submit to the constituyente or be promptly removed.

Many opponents of the government doubt the country's elections authorities can ensure accurate vote counts. All candidates, meanwhile, are being limited to four minutes of political ads per day on independent networks that now survive by self-censoring. "That means there is no food". "It's an important moment for reaffirming the legitimacy of the National Assembly", she said. Opposition leaders said the move involved 205 locations in heavily anti-government districts in 16 states.

Facing a rout, the Maduro administration has tried to sow confusion and discourage foes.

"The number of Venezuelans arriving in Brazilian and Colombian border towns has been rising sharply as the crisis in Venezuela intensifies". He had witnessed a robbery an hour before on the path of Olivares's parade: A woman had her wedding ring taken at gunpoint. "Even their jobs, if they're public workers". Deputy Freddy Superlano is the opposition candidate.

Polls project opposition candidates like Ocariz are likely to win a majority of the 23 governorships up for grabs Sunday.

"The constitutional assembly decided that the (newly elected) governors have to swear to and subordinate themselves to the new constitution as a sine qua non prerequisite in order to assume power", Maduro told the TV interviewer. The former Education Minister and head of the government's minority bench in the National Assembly, Hector Rodriguez, is the candidate of Chavismo. "Just as we were in the streets at demonstrations, we have to remain in the fight for votes". And disenchanted voters may fail to turn out in large numbers, turned off from politics after months of deadly anti-government protests that did not loosen Maduro's control.

U.S. equities finished the week on a high on Friday, amid economic data including weaker-than-expected inflation but strong retail sales numbers.

A key critic of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says he may be barred from traveling to Russia, where he'll seek to build relations with one of the ailing regime's few foreign backers.

- MIRANDA: The outgoing governor is opposition leader Henrique Capriles, who was disqualified for 15 years, so he could not seek a second re-election or run again for president. US financial sanctions, announced in late August, have proven unpopular among Venezuelans, with 51.6 percent of the population rejecting the measure, according to the conservative think tank Datanalisis. Because of the close ties between the Maduro regime and Lebanese Hezbollah, so will Israel and Saudi Arabia.

But even those airlines are showing signs of worry.

"I prefer anyone to a functionary of Maduro's government".

The government is aware that the world will be watching.

Robert Rennhack, deputy director of the IMF's Western Hemisphere Department, described this ensuring refugee crisis as "extremely severe" for the region. People dragged Olivares to ill family members and handed him unfilled prescriptions.

"This was a centre that until last night had voting machines", said Capriles during one of his stops. Medicine and food shortages are endemic. CEFC and Rosneft have also sealed a strategic cooperation deal to jointly develop oil and gas projects in Siberia.

Nearby, a government supporter - a retired policemen who declined to give his name - insisted the opposition was wasting its time. "Our biggest challenge now isn't the government; rather, ourselves".
