ELECTION 2013 | They will use a single ballot

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

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.

After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
