Chavez's Party Wins Venezuelan Elections by Slim Margin

Hosted by

Five years ago, parties opposed to Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez boycotted congressional elections, allowing his United Socialist Party to gain a two-thirds majority and the power to enact sweeping legislation. Yesterday, after the opposition banded together behind a unified plank, the results were very different. Yesterday's elections were seen as a referendum on Chavez's rule. Dan Molinski is in Caracas for the Wall Street Journal.
