Capriles: "We will remove the R and change it to evolution"
Opposition candidate Capriles has made an appeal to choose between stagnation or progress
After listening to the remarks of six community spokespersons on their main issues, Capriles highlighted some of his key programs for employment generation, education, public health and personal security.
"Those who think otherwise," referring to Chávez's supporters, "I do not regard you as enemies." However, Capriles alerted them, "be prepared, brother, because we are considering to remove the 'R' from the revolution you say you support and change it to evolution! (...) evolution means to solve the problems," Capriles remarked.
"You have to make a decision: either you are satisfied with what you have or you aspire to something better; either you want to be stuck or much better, to have a future with progress."
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."
