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.

Carrero: fresh out of The Tomb

Why did Gerardo come to Caracas? One day he took the decision, handed the car keys to his father, gave him his share of the cloth business they both owned in San Cristóbal and kissed his wife and two sons goodbye. "He told us he was going to continue fighting for Venezuela," the wife says. That was in mid-2013. He has been imprisoned since May 8, 2014.
