Neither Edgar Zambrano, a congressman for opposition Acción Democrática (AD) party, nor the relatives of political prisoners and exiles have lost their hope for an amnesty.

He promised not to take issue with Solicitor General Cilia Flores, who reasserted on Monday that in Venezuela there are only officials convicted for crimes.

"We understand that the remark is a political statement," the parliamentarian commented.

He squeezed in the call to talks made by President Hugo Chávez shortly after his reelection.

"We have grasped such a call for dialogue, and it is imperative, as it happens in any smart society, for the sake of prisoners and exiles," Zambrano emphasized.

Lastly, he urged the Executive Office to make a soon as possible a decision for the release of prisoners for political reasons. For such purpose, he noted, the Solicitor General "is a very important factor."
