One week before Venezuela's hotly contested presidential election, the two main contenders rallied the voters on sunday. A huge crowd filled the capital to cheer for opposition candidate Henrique Capriles. Capriles rode on a truck through a mass of supporters before his speech criticizing President Hugo Chavez for not fulfilling his promises.

But in the west of the country, Chavez drew thousands of people who praised his achievements as leader. Recent polls show a wide range of support for both candidates. The vote will take place on October 7th.
