Carlos Ocariz, the mayor of Sucre municipality and spokesperson for dissenting alliance Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) at the negotiating table between the Venezuelan government and opposition political forces, said talks are aimed to restoring the constitutional rights of the people.
In that connection, Ocariz added that rather than discussing the “rules set forth in the Constitution,” they would request relevant authorities “to enforce them because they are rights of the citizens.”
The opposition leader admitted he made a mistake when describing “political prisoners” as “detained people.” “It was a mistake, I admit it,” he stressed.
Ocariz further criticized the stance of dissenting “Voluntad Popular” (People’s Will-VP) party following the release on Sunday of a document that, in his view, “is useless and counterproductive.”
“I disagree with VP’s communiqué. I think it is an irresponsible document that has failed to include things agreed. They (the party) took part in the MUD’s discussion to decide to engage in talks. Having different stances within the alliance is not a tragedy; we are a team and must show that despite differences,” the dissenter underscored.
