The White House on Monday congratulated the “Venezuelan people” for the peaceful, democratic election that gave President Hugo Chavez win his third six-year term.
According to pool reports, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the administration offered its support to Venezuelan voters, “while noting the U.S. has its differences with Chavez.”
Chavez defeated challenger Henrique Capriles by nearly 10 percentage points, the closest margin of victory for the incumbent yet.
Chavez has been battling stomach cancer, though details about his condition are scarce. Under his “21st century socialism,” Venezuela has been plagued by government corruption, food shortages, crime, high unemployment, power blackouts and double-digit inflation.
Many believed that Capriles, a telegenic young former state governor, was the ideal opposition candidate to unseat the controversial president. But Chavez had at his disposal state-run media and the resources of the government to help bankroll his reelection efforts.
Venezuela’s ties with the U.S. have been strained under Chavez, a sharp critic of American policy.
Earlier this year, Obama said “free and fair” elections in Venezuela were his primary concern for the South American country.
At least a dozen people were killed as the streets of Caracas, Venezuela, erupted into a night of riots, looting and clashes between government opponents and the National Guard late Thursday and early Friday, with anger from two days of pro-democracy demonstrations spilling into unrest in working-class and poor neighborhoods.
The attorney general’s office in Venezuela said 11 people had died of electrocution and gunshot wounds “in acts of violence” in El Valle, a neighborhood of mixed loyalties, where armored vehicles struggled to contain crowds of looters. In Petare, a working-class section in eastern Caracas, a protester was shot dead at the entrance to the city’s largest barrio, said Carlos Ocariz, the district mayor.
Throughout the night, the sounds of banging pots and pans reverberated through the capital, a traditional form of protest known as the “cacerolazo,” which has taken on greater significance as the country struggles with shortages of food.
Liang-Ming Mora, 43, a resident of El Valle, described watching from the window of her high-rise apartment as her neighbors threw objects at National Guardsmen and residents of a nearby area descended onto the streets, burning tires and looting stores.
The crowd, she said, moved through the neighborhood, destroying a large supermarket, a liquor store and other businesses.
A stolen police helicopter used during a daring attack on the Venezuelan Supreme Court was found Wednesday in a rural part of the country, but the man authorities say piloted the aircraft is on the run.
The helicopter was allegedly piloted by Oscar Perez, an officer in the country’s investigative police force. As it strafed the court building and the Interior Ministry in Caracas on Tuesday, attackers fired gunshots and lobbed grenades, officials said.
The assault was a dramatic escalation of the months-long crisis engulfing the regime of President Nicolas Maduro.
None of those involved in the attack appear to have been tracked down. Venezuela has asked Interpol to issue a red notice for Perez, according to Néstor Luis Reverol, the county’s minister of interior, justice and peace. A red notice alerts authorities in other countries, including border officials, that someone is wanted.
The helicopter was found in the seaside state of Vargas, Venezuelan state news agency AVN reported. Photos published on the verified Twitter feed for Venezuela’s Vice President Tareck El Aissami? show the helicopter in a clearing. It was found by the Venezuelan Air Force in a heavily-wooded area near the municipality of Osma, some 80 kilometers (50 miles) northeast of Caracas.
