Zulia state governor hails rising turnout in his state
The Zulia state governor running for reelection urged people to vote
Pablo Pérez, the present Zulia state governor running for reelection, affirmed that turnout in his state "increases as time goes by," which makes him very "happy."
"Zulia will demonstrate today (Sunday) that it is still a democratic state," he underlined. Precisely for this reason, the opposition policymaker made an appeal to vote and "continue giving an example of the democratic principles and values characteristic in the region."
"The history of Zulia is to be written by us, Zulia residents, in golden letters (...) Those in Caracas will not determine for us our political fate," he cautioned.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
