Actualité - Chavez: Reprimand Vote for Republicans

Caracas, Nov 8 (Prensa Latina) - The defeat of the US Republican Party in the congressional elections was described as a punishment vote for Bush´s aggressive policy, by the Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

In a meeting with foreign correspondents, Chavez attributed the result to open rejection of the Iraq war that has caused thousands of deaths, the patriot-law to suppress freedoms in the United States and approval to build a wall on the border with Mexico.

Similarly, the dignitary considered that the US population rejected the corruption in its government and its incapacity in various areas, as witness the abandonment of the people after the passage of Hurricane Katrina.

Regarding the Latino vote, Chavez asserted that Bush received a real beating, with a 73 percent rejection, mainly due to the border wall initiative, which he said is not only against Mexico but against all of Latin America.

Commenting on the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Chavez augured “the fall has begun” for the Bush administration, and said heads will begin to roll.

The Venezuelan president challenged the US president, head of “a savage government,” to “for moral reasons” submit himself to a revocation referendum, as Chavez had done, or to move up the elections. This would be a dignified way out of the many tensions of the world, he concluded.
