Venezuela's Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) has asked Miranda state governor Henrique Capriles Radonski to run again for president on behalf of the opposition coalition. The election will be held next April 14 in order to fill the vacancy left by late President Hugo Chávez.

The news was given by MUD Secretary General Ramón Guillermo Aveledo. He noted that they are ready to take part in the election, even though it is full of "opportunism." He listed as the most "prominent" the ruling issued by the Constitutional Court of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), under which former Vice-President Nicolás Maduro may be concomitantly the acting Venezuela's President  and presidential candidate without the need to resign from his current position.

Aveledo reported that all the MUD political parties resolved to use one single ballot.
