Capriles calls for unity to face major changes in 2013
The governor of Miranda state Henrique Capriles sent a message to the Venezuelan people on the occasion of the year's end. "Venezuela has learned a lot in a short time. Now, we know the value of unity and consensus and the need to set goals and work to achieve them," he said
"Venezuela has learned a lot in a short time. Now, we know the value of unity and consensus and the need to set goals and work to achieve them. Those who believe that things cannot change will start to wake up as long as each of us, the force that drives the change, does what we have to do about the future," Capriles said in a letter published in his personal blog.
The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
