Cabello: The National Assembly will continue to support Chávez
Diosdado Cabello, the Speaker of the National Assembly, said the opposition will not be allowed to "plot against the people" from the National Assembly. He reported that new board of the Venezuelan Parliament would be set up on Saturday morning
In one of his messages via Twitter, Cabello said the National Assembly will support President Hugo Chávez. "@dcabellor: Make no mistake. The National Assembly is socialist and revolutionary. It will continue by the side of the people and our commander," he said.
Finally, he warned Chávez's opponents that they will not be allowed to take action against citizens. "@dcabellor: If the opposition believes that they will have room in the Assembly for plotting against the people, they are wrong again. They will be defeated," he said in a tweet.
Why did Gerardo come to Caracas? One day he took the decision, handed the car keys to his father, gave him his share of the cloth business they both owned in San Cristóbal and kissed his wife and two sons goodbye. "He told us he was going to continue fighting for Venezuela," the wife says. That was in mid-2013. He has been imprisoned since May 8, 2014.
