Venezuela to decide Chavez's fate on Sunday

Over the years, Chavez has used his country's huge oil revenues to boost his popularity and stay in power.

    On Sunday, Venezuelans go to the polls to elect a president.
     
    The two contenders are busy with last minute campaigning, with President Hugo Chavez addressing thousands of supporters in the central state of Aragua. 

    He's seeking another six year term as head of state. But now some of the people who supported Chavez are becoming disillusioned and are now supporting his challenger Enrique Carpiles Radonski
