President Maduro recalls Hugo Chavez’s electoral victory in 1998

Caracas, Dec 6 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Tuesday recalled the electoral victory of Commander Hugo Chavez (1954-2013) in the presidential election of December 6, 1998.

Twenty-four years ago, a new historic stage started off in our country, Maduro tweeted, while pointing out that the “resounding electoral victory of Commander Chavez” put an end to the bipartisanship that had sold the country for over 40 years.

“Today we have Popular Power and an inclusive, free and sovereign homeland. Long live Chavez!,” Maduro live-tweeted.

In an audiovisual posted on Twitter, Maduro showed images of the Bolivarian leader saying that “it was not Chavez´s victory, but the people´s.”

I´m just a straw, pushed by the revolutionary hurricane, one more of this process. Chavez is a national feeling; it is a project that became collective, he underlined.

The Commander highlighted that the “Venezuelan people has dignity, courage, honor and has also proved it today, a day that will go down on history,” and added that it will show the world what it is capable of.

Chavez meant that the Venezuelan people is kneaded with the mud of the liberators of this continent and is proving it anew, and said that December 6 (1998) will be written in the new pages of history.
