The government plan also works as campaign plan. The leadership of ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) expects to bring a breath of fresh air in militants for the gubernatorial election of December 16.

Not an easy task given the internal troubles of Chavezism that have emerged in several states and discouragement of some sectors out of imposed nominees.  However, as instructed by Diosdado Cabello, the PSUV Senior Vice-President, the party rank and file should take part in the "constituent process on the drafting of the National Development Socialist Plan 2013-2019." The involvement, via rallies, focus points or the web, is intended to maintain Chavezism active as the election of state governors and legislative councils is less than one month away.

A file comprising 18 pages and five enclosures on the constituent process, entitled "Public Debate and Mobilization Approaches," acknowledges the need to disseminate the proposed program among voters and adapt it to each state.

The 11 action actions lines include the "commitment to a political and electoral performance of strong support to the revolution, the second socialist plan and President Commander Hugo Chávez."

Three hours

The text also includes 12 guidelines to turn the "homeland program" into the Second National Development Socialist Plan.

Mass meetings will last three hours. The number of participants may vary from 50 through 300 attendees. "Each meeting member" should disseminate the conclusions and discuss them in her/his community.

President Hugo Chávez brought up the Socialist Plan as a government program when he enrolled as a candidate in the National Electoral Council (CNE) last June 11. Now, the PSUV intends to turn it into a development plan with the feedback of the party members and grassroots organizations.

The opposition has been invited to take part in the discussions. President Chávez will bring forward the blueprint at the AN on January 10, when he takes on his third six-year term in office.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
