Capriles: Armed Forces will play a key role in the transition
The candidate for the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), Henrique Capriles Radonski, thinks that the majority of the armed forces "is devoted to democracy, progress, and our country's future"
The candidate for the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), Henrique Capriles Radonski, said on Wednesday that the armed forces will play a key role under the Transition Law, apropos his initiative to submit the bill to the National Assembly (AN).
He indicated that the Law will "establish order, prevent abuse of gold reserves, the international reserves, and the oil issue."
According to the candidate, the government should be most interested in this law. "Anyhow, the armed forces will be pivotal to ensure sovereignty, because if a mortgage agreement is signed to compromise the country future, then sovereignty is in jeopardy."
He is confident that "the vast majority of the armed forces is devoted to democracy, progress, and Venezuela's future."
