Venezuelan society is "in process of statization"
José Virtuoso recommended the dissent to promote ideological debate
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.
When we look at the issue of human rights in Venezuela and the relevant reports submitted each year, a clear pattern emerges, namely, the impunity following the violation of rights such as freedom of expression, political rights, and the right to life and personal integrity, which has Venezuela consistently ranking among the lowest scorers in assessment indices.
