One campaign is telling Venezuelan voters to "disconnect" from other candidates when casting their votes in Sunday's election. With the hashtag #desenchufalos, or "disconnected", challenger Henriques Capriles is asking voters to cast their ballot against politicians he says are connected to corruption, harmful policies, or are in support of the late president Hugo Chavez's brand of socialism. The campaign refers to these politicians as "enchufados", or "connected ones".
