Venezuelan challenger: "Caracas needs solutions, not insults"
The opposition candidate remembers that President Hugo Chávez "rules since last century"
Henrique Capriles, cheered by young people, said that his team "plans to make Caracas a better city, as well as better citizens to everyone of you (...) This project represents the future, the new, the good, the things that need to be improved, the project to solve problems (...) Insults, rude words and disqualifications do not build anything. Caracas does not need insults. It needs solutions." He remembered that "we have a President that rules since last century and it is time for Venezuela to be in the 21st century, it is time for its future, it is time to start a better stage."
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."
