Venezuelan presidential candidate for the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) Henrique Capriles Radonski promised on Wednesday night that if elected the new president next October 7, private TV channel Radio Caracas Televisión (RCTV) would resume broadcast.
"Radio Caracas Televisión is to open its doors again. Power is to give opportunities, not to take them out," the challenger said in a live forum via Facebook. There, he introduced his government plan, particularly, his proposals in the fields of economy, security, employment, education and social programs.
In the forum entitled "Venezuela: Hope in a better future," the hopeful also vowed that telecommunications utility Cantv would not be privatized and its staff will remain as such.
"There are not plans to sell our telecommunications utility, but managing it better and improving Internet services," he explained.
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."
