Capriles: "Today you have proved that future is unstoppable"
The rally in favor of opposition candidate Henrique Capriles in Maracay (northern Aragua state) covered one kilometer
"The victory is assured for future, progress, and the Venezuela that wants to move forward! (...) You have proved to me that the strength of the future is unstoppable!" Capriles exclaimed as he confessed that he did not expect such a crowd.
He delivered a 30-minute speech to encourage voters to reflect upon their families and what was best for the country when they cast their ballot. He also reminded his supporters the broken promises the government had made to Aragua state, which have entailed wasting of the Venezuelan's money. "Fourteen years of broken promises, will you let it be 20 years?" he asked.
"How come the government talks about independence if when you go out, you get robbed, the power fails, and you do not have enough money to buy groceries for your family? What kind of independence is that?! The independence I offer you is about education, health, housing, and security! What has socialism made for Maracay? (...) The future Venezuela will not have power cuts and public services will function! This revolution has brought nothing but insecurity to Aragua and Maracay," he asserted.
Before visiting Aragua state, Capriles Radonski visited San Felipe, Yaracuy state (northwest Venezuela), where he referred to the mandatory radio and television broadcast that was being aired at that moment as a "farewell mandatory broadcast."
