The head of the group of opposition Acción Democrática party at the National Assembly, Edgard Zambrano, thinks that now more than ever, under the current circumstances of the disease suffered by Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, a nationwide dialogue is needed to overcome the plight of political prisoners and exiles.

According to the congressman, relatives repose hope in the proactive decision that the Venezuelan government should make soon.

Shortly after his reelection last October 7, President Hugo Chávez made an invitation for dialogue. Deputy Zambrano took Chávez at his word. He requested a formal meeting with the Head of State to tackle the issue of political prisoners and exiles. On the government side, the task was entrusted to Vice-President and Foreign Minister Nicolás Maduro and Solicitor General Cilia Flores.

The parliamentarian's agenda included meetings with the family members of political prisoners and interviews with Venezuelan exiles in Peru, Costa Rica, Panama, Spain, Colombia and the United States. He also met with the president of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ), Luisa Estella Morales, and the president of the TSJ Criminal Court, Deyanira Nieves.

Later on, Zambrano met with representatives of the Venezuelan Catholic Church. This week, he has plans to appear at academies and universities, including meetings with student councils. "We deem potential responsiveness from the Executive Office and justice administrators as a token of openness and political and democratic will," he wrapped up.
