Ocariz: Election of congressmen, release of detained people agreed

Carlos Ocariz, the mayor of Sucre municipality in north-central Miranda state and a dissenting representative at the negotiating table between the government and the opposition, announced that the holding of new elections in Amazonas state and the release of detained people for political reasons are among the agreements reached.

Accompanied by the secretary general of opposition alliance Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), Jesús Torrealba, Ocariz read out a document highlighting the following agreements with the government:

-Reelection of Congress representatives of Amazonas state
-Respect for autonomy, constitutionality and powers of the National Assembly
-Election of new members of the National Electoral Council (CNE), with a view to attaining an “unbiased electoral power”
-Release of detained people for political reasons


Similarly, Ocariz claimed that the government committed itself to accept humanitarian aid including food and medicines in order to “assist nationals most in need.” Add to this, “the engagement to advance policies allowing both the private and public sectors to agree on efficient and transparent mechanisms for import and distribution of goods and other consumables.”


The dissenting representative further stressed that the goal is to find an electoral solution to the “serious political and institutional crisis in the country.” He added that agreements negotiated so far “move in that direction.”


“These commitments go beyond partisan organizations and have resulted from the pressure put by million Venezuelans on the government to understand the need for solutions to the crisis and to observe the constitutional order. We will continue with that pressure until getting the most important thing: national elections and a recall referendum. In order to make a change, we must be united and join the people to find peaceful solutions towards a better future,” Ocariz underscored.

The mayor’s remarks followed those from Vatican’s representative Claudio María Celli about the progress made by both political sectors to solve the country’s issues.


The fourth meeting between the government and the opposition is to take place next December 6.
