Most people don’t like him and think that he is a borderline dictator. This is how the elections here are. Venezuela's economy They make most of there profit on selling oil to other countries. They make most of there money on trading and exchanging goods. But they do have a electricity and housing crisis. In 2010 they had over 200 billion dollars in exchanges with other countries. This is what Venezuela's economy is like. Major problems One of there problems is about fighting about what part of there country is actually is theirs. They are also having a problem with human trafficking. They also are having problems with drugs. There problems are that people are smuggling them in and out of the country. These are the problems that Venezuela has. Political factions I am going to tell you about some of the political parties. The party that Hugo Chavez was on was United Socialist Party of Venezuela or supv. They also have many more like A New Time or UNT. They basically have the same things as us just different meanings and methods behind how they work. The end!
