Opposition candidate criticizes Chávez for governing via Twitter
Henrique Capriles Radonski, the presidential candidate of opposition umbrella group Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), promised quality jobs to university students
Opposition presidential candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski said that the fact that President Hugo Chávez is ruling Venezuela from Havana, Cuba is "a mockery of the Constitution." Chávez has been in the Caribbean island since April 14 to undergo a new round of radiation therapy.
Capriles used his Twitter account to make this statement.
The governor of the state of Miranda and opposition candidate met last weekend with university students in the city of Barquisimeto, northwest Lara state.
He promised quality jobs to the students of Lisandro Alvarado Central-Western University. "I am sure that you want to have quality jobs. That is the country I want to build together with you," Capriles stressed.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
