RE: Venezuela's Political Disaster - November 30, 2005

Dear Journalists,

Attached herewith please find link to opinion article written by Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat denouncing that the current voting system in Venezuela is not secret. Further, the government allegedly has used recent voting records to act against those who did not vote for Chavez and his supporters.

Also attached please read link to articles written by Analyst Alexandra Beech and Editor of Aleksander Boyd concerning the voting scandal in Venezuela:

Please know that Chavez is planning to go ahead with the December 4 scheduled election even though candidates have withdrawn their candidacies in protest to the illegality of the current voting process.

Isn't this against the law? Is the Organization of American States unable to expose a dictator and restore democracy? What about other international organizations such the European Union and United Nations?

I spoke to Venezuelans hours before the candidates' mass withdrawals, and the spirit was that most of Venezuelans feel cheated big time and that the election scheduled for December 4, 2005 is just a major fraud and potentially harmful against citizens.

The following are related links:

Further, in case you have not read about this yet, U.S. Congressmen Henry Hyde and Tom Lanton were refused entry to Venezuela a few days ago as reported in the attached link:

Chavez is blind to see that Venezuelans are protesting and is not the United States provoking the withdrawal of candidates. Perhaps if Chavez would shut up and listen to what Venezuelans are saying maybe he would see the reality.
