Within the framework of the swearing in of the parish and municipal political commands ‘Venezuela Raises its Voice’ in Zulia State, to promote the Popular Consultation, the leader of Zulia, Manuel Rosales manifested that “the struggle is for fair, free and verifiable elections.
Rosales emphasized that: “Venezuelans have been crushed by the generalized crisis of public services and the growing inflation that has pulverized the Bolivar and the purchasing power of the people thanks to the failed policies of a regime that continues to promote an electoral farce that does not solve the problems of the people in any way.”
He indicated that: “through the parish political commands the people will be organized and mobilized to support and participate in the popular consultation approved by the legitimate National Assembly. We are in the obligation to travel a route that will lead us out of this tragedy suffered by Venezuelans”.
“The people reject the illusory distribution of posts, power and positions through an electoral farce while the country is falling apart. Venezuela deserves to be driven towards peace, progress and prosperity through a change”, he pointed out.
During the swearing-in of the political command ‘Venezuela Raises its Voice’ in the Manuel Dagnino Parish in Maracaibo, Rosales manifested that “the country needs to advance towards the recovery of public services, the modernization of the hospital network, the re-institutionalization, the rule of law and true social policies that benefit the most needy and will be possible through a change driven by a presidential election and of other instances”.
He reiterated that: “the people are living an ordeal, teachers, doctors, nurses. And the people are protesting in the streets of Venezuela demanding a better quality of life. They are working with their nails, while their families are cornered by hunger before the eyes of an indolent regime that persecutes and imprisons dissident voices that cry out for real change”.
He explained that: “salaries are not enough to cover the needs of a family, a carton of eggs is priced at 1,300,000 bolivars, while the minimum salary is 800,000, barely enough for 1 kilo of cornmeal flour.
In the same manner, the leader of Zulia rejected the false accusations made by spokespersons of the regime regarding alleged links with the Simon Bolivar Foundation.
“Neither the leaders nor Un Nuevo Tiempo have any links, much less have we received benefits from that foundation. All Venezuelans know that this new ploy, is part of the persecution, siege and repression of the regime against those of us who fight for democratic change and accompany the people in this calamity,” he affirmed.
He stressed: “The whole world knows that those responsible for the destruction of the country are the regime and its representatives involved in countless acts of corruption, waste and negligence. That’s why we are still in the streets, accompanying the people, and working towards that change they are crying out for”.
