Japanese lower house election 2012
Tokyo, Japan
By joji sasaki
15 Dec 2012

A voter for Liberal Democratic Party(LDP) wearing the national flag of Japan. Besides the disappointing economic situation for the past 20 yeras, the nation has been frustrated by the government's recent weak foreign policy. As a result the patriotism is now growing little by little in this least patriotic country especially in the younger generation.

LDP ruled as a one-party government for a long time and it had been said that one-party regime led political corruption in Japan. In August 2009, the major oppositon Democratic Party of Japan came to the power. It was the first time ever in the postwar era for a change of administration to take place by a majority of votes; however, The party that should have been the solution for the country's long time crisis failed big time to meet the public expectations. And now LDP returned to the power again after three years hiatus and the party leader Abe will come back as Prime Minister for his second time. He would be trying to fulfill his campaign slogan "Regain Japan" and the nation keeps an eye on how he can develop political acumen both nationally and economically.

Rally In Support Of Hugo Chavez In Ca...
Caracas, Venezuela
By @LatAmSight
22 Sep 2012

Thousands of demonstrators marched this Saturday, September 22, 2012 in Caracas, Venezuela, to show their support for socialist president Hugo Chavez, two weeks ahead of a crucial election that could give him another six-year term, after having been in charge since 1999.
Scores of people traveled from distant places of the country to join the march in Caracas, wearing red to show their support of Chavez. Many of these people are benefit recipients of “Misiones,” a popular, government-sponsored social program to fight poverty using oil export revenue.
(interview 1 – Omar Rangel, optometrist: “What Chavez has done is to vindicate us, to include us in all the social programs. That’s what we have now. That’s why here; years and years will pass and we will still be here for Chavez”) In a particularly tight election, on October 7, Chávez will face opposition candidate, Henrique Capriles Radonski, who denies the alleged official government accusations to eliminate “Misiones” if Capriles is elected. (interview 1 – Telandria Castillo, teacher: “He is not friend of the ‘missions’. He has proven that he doesn’t mind the welfare of the mass but only that of one minority”) Chavez, who has remained in power since 1999 and has been treated recently in Cuba for cancer, is leading many polls with more than a 20% advantage over Capriles.
