"It is not my fault that the other one cannot walk round the streets"
Opposition candidate running for president Henrique Capriles Radonski visited on Sunday eight towns in eastern Monagas state
Venezuelan candidate for the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), Henrique Capriles Radonski, visited on Sunday the towns of La Cruz, San Vicente, El Corozo, La Candelaria, El Furrial, Potrerito, Jusepín and Punta de Mata, located in Monagas state, east Venezuela. Among other events, he attended a mass and played basketball with a group of boys.
Capriles Radonski repudiated again the use made by the Venezuelan government of the National Police. Last Saturday, police agents of this body prevented him from electioneering in La Vega, a low-income barrio in western Caracas. He clarified that the MUD will make its best to beat President Hugo Chávez in the polls.
At La Cruz, he was blessed by Maturin bishop Ramón Ramírez.
"We just want to win the election. The government is the one trying foul play," Capriles Radonski warned and attributed the government boycott to the fact that "the other one (President Hugo Chávez) cannot go out for the election campaign."
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."
