Hugo Chavez winning election… with caveats.

It looks like Hugo Chavez is set to win another term as President in Venezuela.

Reuters reports that early official results give Chavez over 60% support and his rival less than 40%.

However, there are reports of irregularities on this Venezuelan blog

7:20 pm est. In perhaps the first credible report of irregularities by an accredited electoral observer, Education Assembly member Leonardo Carvajal said two electoral officials had authorized him to denounce in the media that at several voting centers, armed members of the National Armed Forces had forced electoral workers to keep centers open. At one center, a soldier bearing a machine gun ordered the center to remain open until 9 pm, violating electoral laws.

No doubt this will be headline catching news in the morning here in North America. Lets all hope for a fair, peaceful, result.
