The saying goes “what they give you, take it”, and not, “after you take it, go vote”.
After taking and paying for everything they were given, they prepared to spend a sleepy and homely Sunday, so that the delegate of the constituency, the president of the Committee for the Defense of the Revolution, or the old man from the zonal nucleus of the Communist Party would not it occurred to them to call them to go vote.
It is not yet known how high the abstention amounted, but judging by the empty streets and the faces and comments of the people, it must be quite high, more than the regime will admit when manipulating the figures.
