Capriles: situation of hospitals is not a result of capitalism
The opposition leader instructed state Government officials to provide citizens with solutions in health care
During his speech, the opposition leader referred to the cost of drugs and the dramatic conditions public health care institutions are facing. In this regard, the governor instructed state Government officials to provide citizens with solutions in health care.
Capriles seized the opportunity to reject the remarks by Health Minister Isabel Iturria, who after 15 years of revolution in Venezuela, still blames the situation of hospitals to capitalism instead of the current Government.
Since the Venezuelan government imposed currency and price controls in 2003 property rights have been seriously affected, as the individual's freedom to acquire, use, enjoy and dispose of property has been severely restricted, according to experts.
