"After five months, why does the clamor of the people focuses on a sense of nostalgia for the absence (of late President Hugo Chávez) and not for his legacy? political expert and university professor Nicmer Evans asked in his blog on Sunday.

Evan, who is also a member of ruling party PSUV, launched critiques on the achievement of governability at the expenses of the "construction of the Bolivarian and pro-Chávez socialism."

But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
