Opposition party accuses Venezuelan Gov't of bribing deputies
Opposition deputy Julio Borges remarked that in the same Congress session where Deputy Hernán Núñez announced his detachment from the opposition coalition to join the ruling party, opposition Deputy Richard Mardo reported that Congress Speaker Diosdado Cabello had "sent a messenger" to persuade him to leave the opposition
The statement was issued by Primero Justicia deputy Julio Borges, who remarked that the "Government corrupts people with money."
Borges added that the two deputies, Hernán Núñez and William Ojeda, are, "unfortunately, people who have neither the guts nor dignity to fight for their ideals, and in the end they give in to power."
Borges remarked that in the same Congress' session where Núñez detached himself from the opposition coalition and joined the ruling party, Tuesday, deputy Richard Mardo reported that Congress Speaker Diosdado Cabello had "sent a messenger" to persuade him to leave the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) and "say bad things about Capriles (Henrique Capriles, opposition leader) and Primero Justicia," in exchange for the "freezing" of some corruption allegations that he may be involved in.
