Venezuela's dissenters want Capriles as the challenger
The Executive Secretary of the opposition alliance, Ramón Guillermo Aveledo, conceded that the process is full of "opportunism," yet they will take part in it
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.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
