President Hugo Chavez, who died on March 5, 2013 of cancer at age 58, marked forever the history of Venezuela and Latin America

1. Never in the history of Latin America, has a political leader had such incontestable democratic legitimacy. Since coming to power in 1999, there were 16 elections in Venezuela. Hugo Chavez won 15, the last on October 7, 2012. He defeated his rivals with a margin of 10-20 percentage points .

2. All international bodies, from the European Union to the Organization of American States, to the Union of South American Nations and the Carter Center, were unanimous in recognizing the transparency of the vote counts .

3. James Carter, former U.S. President, declared that Venezuela’s electoral system was “the best in the world.”

4. Universal access to education introduced in 1998 had exceptional results. About 1.5 million Venezuelans learned to read and write thanks to the literacy campaign called Mission Robinson I.

5. In December 2005, UNESCO said that Venezuela had eradicated illiteracy.

6. The number of children attending school increased from 6 million in 1998 to 13 million in 2011 and the enrollment rate is now 93.2%.

7. Mission Robinson II was launched to bring the entire population up to secondary level. Thus, the rate of secondary school enrollment rose from 53.6% in 2000 to 73.3% in 2011.

8. Missions Ribas and Sucre allowed tens of thousands of young adults to undertake university studies. Thus, the number of tertiary students increased from 895,000 in 2000 to 2.3 million in 2011, assisted by the creation of new universities.

9. With regard to health, they created the National Public System to ensure free access to health care for all Venezuelans. Between 2005 and 2012, 7873 new medical centers were created in Venezuela.

10. The number of doctors increased from 20 per 100,000 population in 1999 to 80 per 100,000 in 2010, or an increase of 400%.

First of all, your links are rubbish.

Second, of course he didn't give 'all' to his citizens, he was human and not a saint, he took money for himself and his family.

Third, he gave enough to his people to be considered president who cares about them and had a vision of a better future for them all.

Fourth, how much did Clinton and Bush gave you and how much did Queen of England take? Links and numbers please

As a Brit I would have had him any day over the shower of thieving paedo protecting political nonces, that we have here in the UK. What did the queen give us? SIR jimmy so VILE savile. Mentor to charlie boy for 50 odd years. He was raping children in hospitals schools and just about any where else that he could. All the time protected by the police and govt. Just like cyril smith that big fat slob of an MP who liked to spank childrens bums. Or so his political thieving friends said. He only spanked a few children on the bum? If he had of spanked any of my childrens bums I would have killed the fat greedy slob.
Yes Chavez was alright IMO. He did well for his people and country. A shame that he died of cancer. So he made some money? A just reward for all the good work which he did. He deservedly earned it and I doubt if the people of his country begrudged him it. Plus he didnt have to invade other countrys to steal their wealth and resources. Unlike our own country that went to war on a pack of lies from tony blair.

Because he was corrupt like many others when he should not have been. Would it have been ok if a non-socialst president had this blokes record and been equally corrupt or are you suggesting that its only ok if a capitalst president is corrupt?

But, but, but there is crime there. And it is expensive to fix your car. And a lot of people don't even own cars, or even Ipods, because there is a shortage of iPods there. And he tried to collapse the US economy by giving poor people free heating oil. Those poor people should get jobs instead of conspiring with Chavez to destroy the USA economy.

What else? Oh yeah, around 2008 there was a recession in Venezuela. That's a big one.

So many reasons why Chavez was the evilest dictator in the world.

Are you serious with those propaganda rags? Breitbart? You don't really consider that news, do you?

I very much doubt those rumours about Chavez stealing billions of dollars. I'd have to see evidence. So many people read a few words and take it as gospel. You should think for yourself and not what the government tells you to think.

I'm inclined not to believe a single source/link that slanders Chavez for a few reasons. Mostly because of CIA and US government intrusion into Central and South American affairs since the 1800's. This isn't speculative, it's historical fact. The US has always screened South and Central American leaders, elections, and policies and has taken a very active role in eliminating those they didn't deem acceptable. This included governments that were to be run by democratically elected leadership. Since they have wiped out democratic leaders, it is convincing enough to me to conclude that it's been entirely financially driven and has never, ever been because of the threat of the spread of communism. Castro was the first one to dodge the CIA bullet, and how he managed to do it, I'll never know. Chavez was the same. You can smear him all you want with dubious sources and pseudo facts, but results are results. Venezuela has been much better from him.
