Chavez re-elected as President of Venezuela
CNN.com - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez vowed to press forward with his socialist reforms after winning another six-year term at the helm of the oil-rich South American country.
“Today a new cycle of the Bolivarian government begins,” he told a crowd of cheering supporters after election results were announced. “I promise to be a better president every day.”
Chavez won more than 54% of the vote to defeat Henrique Capriles Radonski in Sunday’s closely watched election. It was the fourth presidential election victory for Chavez, who has been in office since 1999.
