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."
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
