Chávez: Opposition campaign is "misleading, biased"
The president running for reelection anticipated that on October 7 the country political horizon would be cleared up
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez held on Monday his first press conference as a presidential candidate for the election of October 7. He availed himself of the opportunity to urge his followers to "keep on approaching other strata where there is no clarity" about his revolution.
"This election campaign that is starting should consolidate the awareness to keep on moving towards other strata where there may be no clarity or confusion cashed in on by the bourgeoisie through lies," the president said.
He specified that on October 7 the country political horizon would be cleared up. "We will know whether there will be or not homeland."
Chávez labeled the opposition campaign as "misleading, biased," in reference to the visit paid by challenger Henrique Capriles Radonski to indigenous communities.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
