Socialists risk losing power in the former governor's home state

Socialists risk losing power in the former governor's home state ...

Venezuelans, four days after a state of the former President's residence was awaiting a candidate for the ruling Socialist Party's election results, 4 days after millions of people took their regional vote in regional competitions across the South America nation.

Socialists, which led to the victory of President Nicolas Maduro, won 19 of the 23 governorships of Sunday's vote, the opposition taking three, according to a tally of the National Electoral Council on Monday.

Until now, the state of Barinas in west Venezuela where Argenis Chavez, current governor and brother of the late Venezuelan leader, is running for re-election as a socialist. Hugo Chavez died of poverty in 2013, but now is in state.

Freddy Superlano, a member of the opposition leader Juan Guaido's party, says he's confident that results, when released, will show he was won the race. He bases the claim on voter tally sheets, most of which have been scrutinized.

A Superlano victory in Barinas would be largely symbolic as it would leave the opposition with four governorships, the number that it held before the election.

The delay in election results also could misplace the new electoral council in the country's new parliament. The government agreed in May to allow two opposition officials to form the five-member council. The council declined comment.

Since the 2014 election he declared the winner of an election that was fraudulent by Washington, the European Union and many of the other Venezuelans.

The European elections observation mission is located in Barinas, said Isabel Santos, the head of the mission. She said the regional elections were held better than the previous contests, but declined to say whether the vote was free and fair.

She added that the final report of the mission's mission is expected to be delivered by the end of January or in early February.

Diosdado Cabello, vice president of the Venezuelan Socialist Party, has harshly criticised the EU mission.

"They (observers) say they come in January, how do you think you can come to Venezuela when you want? No, my friend, that isn't the case!" Cabello said on Wednesday.
