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.

This is all there is

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
