During a meeting held with members of his cabinet on Thursday, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez said that during his presidential campaign, prior to the election held on October 7, he commented that his government plan providing for "five great historical objectives" would be set up on the basis of a "bottom-up approach," that is to say, by the people.

He invited the opposition to join the process, which he defined as a "general call to the people to join the debate on the construction of the homeland." He also remarked that middle-income households and professionals could make valuable contributions to the debate.

He added that the country "is in need of a serious and responsible opposition," although it seems said opposition "has missed all its chances." The Venezuelan president asserted that opposition leaders have been lying about his Second Socialist Development Plan of the Nation 2013-2019.

Chávez stressed it is not true he intends to eliminate mayors and governors' offices in Venezuela. "Will they lie again? Do they think they can fool the people?" he asked.

Often times heralded as "the best cocoa in the world," a passion for quality dating back to the sixteenth century has made Venezuelan cocoa growers to enjoy high prestige at international level and their product to be among the most sought-after in the world.
