STATEMENT

The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Commander Hugo Chavez, on behalf of the Bolivarian Government and the Venezuelan People, congratulates the sister people of the Republic of Nicaragua, for the successful holding, amidst a climate of joy and peace, of the general elections today Sunday November 6. They have achieved a commitment to building their own future, within the framework of a participatory and leading democracy.

Additionally, the peoples of the Our Great American Homeland... joyfully celebrate the overwhelming victory of comrade Commander President Daniel Ortega.

This new people's victory, besides strengthening hope in a future of dignity and sovereignty for the whole region, is an expression of the sound support of Nicaraguans to a government deeply devoted to its people, to which the vast majority, previously excluded, recognize its task of reconciliation and national unity, because it has managed to move on successfully to give rights back to the people.

It also expresses the consolidation of the integration project of the peoples of America, to which Commander President Daniel Ortega has contributed efficiently. ALBA, an advanced effort in the integration of our America, has Nicaragua as a great bastion and President Daniel Ortega as one of its distinguished leaders.

In this day of people's exultation, President Hugo Chavez reiterates the will and commitment of the Bolivarian Revolution to continue working together with the Sandinista, Christian, Supportive and Socialist People's Revolution, within a framework of respect to the sovereign will of its people, to consolidate the Great Homeland dreamed of  by our heroes and liberators Augusto C. Sandino, Carlos Fonseca Amador and Simon Bolivar.

Long Live Nicaragua, the daybreak is not a temptation anymore!
