Democracy dies in Venezuela.

Apparently, Chavez has changed the election law to ensure perpetual governance by his party:

In a significant defeat for Venezuela’s democracy, a new voting system installed by the Chavista government, called ‘los morochas’, which disproportionately benefits Chavista incumbents, was affirmed by Venezuela’s Supreme Court, an appointed body stacked with Chavista loyalists. It is expected to raise Hugo Chavez’s representation in the Congress - where he already has a majority - to Kim Il Sung levels of popular ’support.’ The bell tolls for Venezuelan democracy with this ruling.
