Hugo Chavez has much to tackle in Venezuela
Crime, inflation afflict the country
Venezuelans awakened on Monday to the prospect of another six years under President Hugo Chavez as the leftist president’s supporters celebrated his victory and a galvanized opposition pledged to build on its gains. In his victory Sunday, Chavez reconfirmed his masterly political touch but he won by his tightest margin yet. Challenger Henrique Capriles, conceding defeat, said that his campaign had launched a new political force and that he would keep working for change.
