Cabello predicts opposition primary will fail

“One looks at some polls that say such a candidate has 20-something percent, and another 10-something percent, but those same polls say only 17 percent have heard of primary elections and a question Who else will participate? Go find out. A failure, a true failure.”

This was stated by Diosdado Cabello, First Vice President of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), in the context of a primary election program announced for a sector of the opposition to choose a candidate for the presidential election.

He criticized that this sector of the opposition “is counting on Venezuelan participation abroad” to show acceptable numbers in this primary process if it is carried out with the National Electoral Council’s mechanism “where there can be no fraud”. ”

“If 200,000 participate there, there are 200,000, the figures of the CNE cannot be inflated,” he pointed out and ruled out the possibility of a presidential election with manual voting, as some former candidates have pointed out.

“If you want to win an election, forget that when the elections are going to be manual because the OAS (Organization of American States) is going to come, no, here the elections are going to be with the CNE which is us,” he said .

Lasso covered by America

Cabello, on the other hand, referred to the decision to dissolve the National Assembly of Ecuador, executed by Ecuadorian President Guillermo Lasso, and assured that this action has the support of the United States.

“What Lasso did is authorized by the United States, so if people go out to protest they are going to eat them alive,” he warned, calling the North American country’s government “hypocritical.”

“Lasso of Ecuador decided with a stroke of the pen to dissolve Congress under the constitution, and the United States said it ‘respects’ the constitutional decision. Pedro Castillo also tried to do the same under the constitution. Key and the Gringos accuse him of taking ‘extra-constitutional’ actions, but there is a fundamental moral difference; Lasso came to the presidency at the hands of businessmen, he is the president of an oligarchy, while Pedro Castillo is a school teacher who works for businessmen. had come without support, but had come from the towns”, he explained.

He questioned, “This is the extreme hypocrisy of American imperialism and then they come to you talking about democracy and human rights.”

He confirmed that Lasso’s decision was made because of the imminence of his dismissal by the Ecuadorian National Assembly.

“Why is Lasso doing this? Because his prosecution was imminent despite the fact that the majority of that Congress was from his economic group, trial was imminent. Imagine, the acts of corruption would be like this,” he insisted.

Coup against petro

Cabello also mentioned Colombia and reiterated his warnings about a coup against President Gustavo Petro, whom he calls a “narcoparaca capitalist”.

“I take this opportunity to warn about the attempt that is currently taking place in the institutions of the Colombian drug-trafficking capitalists to overthrow President Petro because a real war against drug trafficking is going on ,” They said.

In this regard, he condemned the position of attack assumed by the United States Government. “Of course, the United States is now taking the blanket from President Petro and raising the alarm for its citizens because of the threat of abduction, of course they talk about the border there, but the truth is that the attack is against the government Hai President Petro,” he said.

“We alert the social movements of the world about what is happening in Colombia,” he stressed.
