"Communal Power is a power inside the State and, therefore, it has been subject to the guidelines of the Executive Office," said on Wednesday Feliciano Reyna, the president of NGO Sinergia in the forum "Venezuelan politics and construction of majorities Beyond the electoral issue," held at Andrés Bello Catholic University (UCAB).

In Reyna's words, Venezuela undergoes "statization of society" and individual spaces are getting narrower.

UCAB President José Virtuoso strongly recommended the opposition to tackle the ideological debate to construct majorities and face polarization.

For Pedro Benítez, the Public Policy Coordinator of the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), "the opposition has lately neglected the social work; working in low-income barrios."

Marino González, a researcher into public policies, advised to strengthen "capacity building of party militants to back the society processes."

For his part, Ricardo Villasmil, Ph. D of Economics, postulated that in the past presidential election, "the relationship between poverty and preference grew."

He spelled out that the dissent got a higher profile in higher strata than in lower strata, and he complained about polarization.

To his mind, President Hugo Chávez managed to be reelected due to the soaring public spending and State indebtedness. He lamented that Venezuela is among the countries with the worst indexes of debt, welfare and country risk.

And they found the jail

At least 30 years had passed since his last visit to Caracas. He had little time to become an expert on moving about in such a complicated metropolis. Whether it was hopping on the subway, finding directions, playing waiting games at public agencies, eating whatever he could and sleeping wherever he could, Guerrero senior had been wandering the streets for 60 days, and thanks to "the boys" he found some sort of relief by way of helping hands.
