So it says the Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles, who insists that the government of Nicolas Maduro will not resist the pressure of the Bolivarian country’s economic crisis, the growing doubts about the legitimacy of the government and the interior division of Chavez’ followers.
“I have no crystal ball to tell when we will have the (new presidential) elections, but this Government, with the conditions of illegitimacy it currently has and the deep economic crisis, will surrender,” said Capriles in an interview with international news agency, Reuters.
“How will they (surrender)? Through all the mechanisms that are in the Constitution: referendum, new elections or resignation. But as I told Venezuelans in Colombia, do not ask me for different ways other that the ones in the Constitution; to me this is a peaceful struggle, “said the opposition leader.
According to recent surveys, Maduro is facing a difficult economic situation, with a high inflation, and a shortage crisis that has beaten his popularity.
