A Peruvian lawyer says Venezuelan opposition leader Manuel Rosales has requested political asylum in Peru. Rosales is a leading opponent of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and has been charged with corruption in Venezuela. Rosales says his trial there would not be fair.

Late Sunday, the National Electoral Council reported that Chavez's gubernatorial candidates were leading in 17 of 22 states, two of which, Tachira and Carabobo, were too close to call. Chavez's party appeared set to lose the Caracas mayoralty, however.
OPINION
December 5, 2006
THERE ARE PLENTY of reasons for Venezuelans not to like Hugo Chavez. Crime, especially murder, has skyrocketed during his eight years as president. Corruption is ubiquitous -- the country ranks No. 138 out of 163 on Transparency International's annual misgovernance index (the higher the number, the more corrupt the country is perceived to be).
