'Hugo Chavez faces toughest election fight'

Despite heavy rain, thousands of supporters of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez watched him give his final campaign speech before Sunday's presidential election. According to recent polls, Chavez faces his toughest election fight in his 13-year old presidency. His challenger Henrique Capriles Radonski has accused the Venezuelan president of economic mismanagement and failing to curb soaring crime rates. But to his supporters, Chavez is a popular icon mainly because of his social welfare policies that have helped the poor. Thursday's huge turnout, which brought an estimated 200000 people to downtown Caracas, was larger than Capriles's rally on Sunday. Despite the youthful Capriles edging up in the polls and embracing a message of change, many Chavez supporters at the rally were content with the Venezuelan president remaining in power as long as he likes. At the end of this massive rally, the Venezuelan president warned that his challenger Capriles Radonski will defund many of the social programs that have been implemented in the last 13 years. Venezuelans head to the polls this Sunday. Follow our Facebook on: Follow our Twitter on: Follow our Tumblr on:
