The head of the parliamentarian group of opposition Acción Democrática party, Edgar Zambrano, claimed on Tuesday that the proposal made by Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez shortly after his reelection on October 7 to deal with the release of political prisoners and the comeback of exiles "is frozen" because of his deteriorated health condition.

"Undoubtedly the situation resulting from the serious health condition of the Venezuelan president has partly frozen the outcome of the proposal made by the Executive Office to hold talks," Zambrano told news TV channel Globovisión during an interview.

Precisely for this reason, he is pursuing meetings with other government authorities, including the president of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) Luisa Estella Morales; People's Ombudsman Gabriela Ramírez and Attorney General Luisa Ortega Díaz, in order to hand the reports over to them and get a decision.

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.
