Henrique Capriles: There is no figure of succession
Former presidential candidate of Venezuela, Henrique Capriles was upset by the news that Nicolas Maduro is “successor and political heir” of President Hugo Chavez, who confessed he returned to Cuba to undergo a new intervention in the coming days. “There is no figure of succession,” Capriles said evidence at the time of concern about what might happen if new elections convened.
In the last election, Chavez, who did not rule out the possibility of not being able to assume the presidency next January 10, due to the cancer he faced, he took advantage of 10% for his main and sole candidate Henrique Capriles, who has become the political head of the opposition and so its voice is heard with attention. “This is not Cuba or a monarchy where a king who claims the throne and designates another king,” he said at the same time he warned that it would be “an entirely different picture if Maduro emerges as a candidate.”
Anyway, Capriles called to be alert as to what is happening in their country and, consequently, if Chavez cannot continue exercising, we must demand that elections be convened promptly, so that the Venezuelan people, at the polls, choose freely and independently whomever they want.
