Venezuelan ruling party's elected governors to follow one single direction
The government slogan, "a single Government," implies complying with Simón Bolívar Plan
The slogan refers to the general guidelines that the 20 ruling party's governors shall comply with. The guidelines are set forth in the Socialist Plan 2013-2019 proposed by President Hugo Chávez.
As Vice-President Nicolás Maduro announced during the inauguration of Guárico state new Governor Ramón Rodríguez Chacín, the new governors shall present in 24 hours their state plans. Maduro reaffirmed that governors shall "comply with the guidelines set out in Simón Bolívar Development Plan."

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
