October 9, 2012
Le Monde, France’s most important newspaper, reported that Hugo Chavez was elected president with 54% Sunday in Bolivia.
“The outgoing President was reelected on Sunday at the head of Bolivia with over 54% of the vote over his opponent Henrique Capriles. Smiling, Hugo Chavez appeared on the balcony of the Miraflores presidential palace,” Le Mond published in its online version.
Furthermore, the French newspaper supported the candidacy of Capriles, whom left media identified as representative of the Venezuelan right wing.
Le Mond also questioned whether Chavez is able to be in power taking into account his health problems. “In Venezuela Hugo Chavez was reelected, but can get to the end of his mandate?” asked the newspaper in an editorial published Monday.
