The 2010 opposition primaries

UPDATE 2: see results in this post.

UPDATE 1:  voting time has been extended by two hours because, well, people went out to vote in larger numbers than expected.   And what does Chaevz think of this?  See post above.
The opposition is voting in the few districts it chose to hold primaries.  To be noted: Caracas district 1 which covers popular districts of Sucre/Catia and El Junquito is also in the voting.  There are lines to vote, not huge lines but lines nevertheless.  What is important in that district where chavismo is strong is that the mere act of voting risks to brand you as an anti Chavez person, with all the possible consequences that come in a coutnry where the Tascon list still is in use.  I write it down as an excellent sign that chavismo fortunes are ebbing that Catia is voting signficantly.

Elsewhere nothing much to report.  Thus no election day continuous post as for other elections.  Just an update tonight as results come.
