1:06 am
a lot of name calling during this campaign period you have a model accusing us of being at the prince of the bourgeoisie not representing the poor calling him capricious some of the other hand he's accusing me of being a liar or using this as a body to run a political campaign now however they did talk to both of them tough on the issue of tackling crime in the country this is a top concern of the citizens here they want to see the quantum level addressed and brought down a small as a government bureaucracy and inefficiencies there are those who work staunchest supporters very loyal to everything that this is a story for the so-called socialist revolution big to continue this and some of them out of this loyalty vote for nicolas maduro on the other hand you have those people who have been blaming the government for a lot of the problems of the country not least of these two which is why bureaucracy and what they say is a bit of stagnation in terms of the way business is going in the country and they they say they will vote for the best so many are watching these elections both the
