Venezuela polls to test Chavez

President's support base risks being eroded by opposition in Sunday's legislative elections.


    Opponents and supporters of Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan president, have held their final rallies ahead of Sunday's legislative elections.

    There are 165 members of the National Assembly - and most of them are pro-Chavez.

    But that could change after the vote, being seen as a critical test for the president's rule.
