The MUD Executive secretary highlighted that President Chávez had used all the state resources available to obtain his victory. "We went trough an unbalanced electoral campaign. In Venezuela, elections were free, but not fair, because there was no equity among the candidates."

For his part, the head of Comando Venezuela, Armando Briquet thanked all the voters who trusted the proposal of Capriles Radonski. "Six and a half million Venezuelans want to build a better country, and they clearly stated that the life we are living nowadays is not the life we deserve."

As for the call President Chávez made to Capriles, Briquet asserted that "a telephone call does not mean the star of dialogue." He remarked that dialogue begins with "the recognition of the other, and the reduction of tension, insults and damaging remarks against those who disagree with him (the President).
