Daniel Duquenal and Steven Taylor both note that Governor of Zulia state, Manuel Rosales formerly registered as the unified opposition candidate for the December 3 presidential election. Miguel Octavio attended Rosales’ rally, which he photographed and described in detail: “Attendance was quite diverse, not a huge middle class presence, which is good, you know who they are going to vote mostly for. It was clear that the political parties worked at bringing people to the rally. There were buses, but not on the scale of Chavez’ last Saturday and clearly people were there because they decided to go. No Government resources at work.” Finally, Aleksander Boyd has his own thoughts on Rosales’ candidacy.
