Miranda state governor Henrique Capriles Radonski has disclosed that a press conference will be held on Sunday evening to report on his decision regarding a proposal to run for president.

"Many thanks for the thousands of messages; I appreciate them all; tonight (Sunday), I will tell the country my decision; God bless you," he twitted.

Earlier, on Saturday evening, he talked about the call for election from the National Electoral Council (CNE) and the proposal made by Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) to nominate him in representation of the opposition. "I am pondering on the remarks made by the CNE president. Over the next few hours, I will tell the country my decision."

In the event of saying yes, this would be his second candidacy as Venezuelan president.

Capriles, 40, was initially elected in primaries as the challenger of then candidate and President Hugo Chávez. He lost the election for president last October 7, 2012.

The presidential election has been slated for April 14. The next Venezuelan president will be in office until 2019.
