Red Power

Venezuelan Communist party won eight seats in the National Assembly, its best performance since 1958.

The congressional vote was marked by unprecedented abstention and serious doubts about the process. International observers, including the OAS and the European Union openly questioned the process in which the government obtained total parliamentary control (100% of the seats).

The communist ascendancy within the government coallition evidences the radicalization of Venezuela.
