Opposition leader urges Venezuelans to vote next December 16
"I call upon Venezuelans who are fully aware that Venezuela can be in a better position. I ask you not to surrender"
Lopez seized the opportunity to urge Venezuelans to cast massively their ballots in next December 16 gubernatorial election.
"I call upon Venezuelans who are fully aware that Venezuela can be in a better position. I ask you not to surrender. I urge you not to give in your vote, which belongs to you, even more than your own ID."
López added, "Next December 16 we must vote freely so as to guarantee the construction of a better Venezuela, the one we all deserve. We can solve all the problems affecting Venezuelans and our families in our communities by beginning from the regions (...) that is why we must guarantee that governors' offices are led by men and women like Richard Mardo, who works unsparingly for the wellbeing of Aragua state's citizens."

The price of a package of precooked corn flour used to make corn cakes called arepas, a staple food in Venezuela, has been regulated at VEB 19, but production cost exceeds VEB 26. At present both state-run and private plants face the same difficulty of having to produce at a loss. But that's just one of the many obstacles facing those involved in putting the arepa on the Venezuelans plate.
