http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-19867445 I find it bit surprising and have my doubts on results. On the other side of the world, Chavez friend Putin is celebrating his 60th birthday today. http://abcnews.go.com/International...s-60th-birthday-fanfare-17416905#.UHJDiGfAFuw I guess it's a good day for them.
