Reporting on the date for elections in Venezuela in 2012, the reasons given for Hugo Chavez's "repeated election victories" are cited as "personal charisma" and "promise of revolutionary change". Even though the same article mentions the social programmes which have helped the poor, it is not suggested that this may have led to election victories in the past.
Excerpt:
Mr Chavez's personal charisma and promise of revolutionary change have helped him secure repeated election victories since he first won the presidency in 1999.
