The Venezuelanalysis Podcast Episode 03: Back to the Ballot

In the third episode of our podcast, we analyze the challenges ahead of the November 21 regional elections and how this vote could unlock the country's political and economic path.

Venezuelans will head to the polls on November 21 for regional and local “mega-elections.” This election, the 27th since Chávez came to power, marks the first time since 2015 that Chavismo will face most of the opposition. In the latest episode of our podcast, we take stock of the political landscape ahead of these pivotal contests.

Host José Luis Granados Ceja talks to fellow VA writer Paul Dobson about the different political forces vying in these elections and some of the main issues at play in the campaign. Likewise featured is Venezuelan writer and theorist Reinaldo Iturriza, who analyzes the “disaffiliation” that has taken over politics and how Chavismo can revitalize its grassroots.
