By Aleksander Boyd

Caracas 03.12.06, 10:06pm | Tibisay Lucena, director of CNE, has just informed that Hugo Chavez won the election with 5,936,141 of votes, results arrived at after 78% of voting centres have been tallied. Manuel Rosales got 3,715,292 votes according to Lucena. People close to the campaign of Rosales informed me, just before the announcement, that Rosales did not have enough votes.

Manuel Rosales is expected to address the nation shortly. President Hugo Chavez has just appeared in Miraflores "people's balcony" and is singing the national anthem.
