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.
The story could have been different. On April 12, 2014, university students led a march to the Attorney General Office in order to submit concrete requests in regards to security and to demand the release of a group of youngsters detained in Táchira state.
