    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.
