Quico says: Check out the the audio of parts of Leopoldo Lopez’s press conference in Caracas yesterday. It’s heartening to see that he’s fully conscious that the government is out to provoke them, and explicitly labels the rumors going around as such.
The thing I find astonishing is that this is the only government that says its opposition will commit fraud. Who could believe the government? They control the CNE, they control the Supreme Tribunal, they say the Armed Forces are red, very red though we don’t believe that, we think they are tricolor, they control PDVSA, they control all the ministries, the state governments and municipal governments and they go around saying that the opposition is going to steal the election!
