The MAS expressed its total support for the National Primary Commission, respect for the results and María Corina Machado who obtained the overwhelming majority of the votes. “We reject all the arbitrary actions of the government and that according to our account, they are going through step 42 of the authoritarian route to prevent there from being a peaceful, democratic and alternative electoral solution here,” said Felipe Mujica.
Felipe Mujica, general secretary of the Movement for Socialism MAS, assured this Monday that after the opposition primary event on October 22, “the electoral path once again became a door so that we Venezuelans can get the country out of the terrible conflict.” where we are, so no judicial decision can ignore the popular mandate and the government must assume that it is a minority.”

He recalled that from the orange awning it was pointed out, prior to the opposition primary, the existence of three plans by the national government against this electoral event: the use of the Comptroller’s Office, the Prosecutor’s Office and the Supreme Court of Justice, highlighting that In the case of the action of the Electoral Chamber of the TSJ “it could have been done pre-primary since it was announcing at different times and left the second option it had, which was to bet that the primary, by its own development, would fail by itself. , which did not happen.”
“The first person surprised by the result produced by the Primary on October 22 was the government that was openly betting on failure and that strategy was also ineffective, producing, on the contrary, massive participation,” he emphasized.
Mujica highlighted that after the event of October 22, the government’s immediate reaction was to go to the institutions to make its threat against the National Primary Commission and the result obtained come true. “The Prosecutor appeared, statements from government representatives appeared saying that the numbers were not true and there was also the famous program on Wednesday between Jorge Rodríguez and Diosdado Cabello who spent two hours speaking against the Primary.”
In his opinion, all these actions mean that in the end the national government decided to end the Primary through the authoritarian mechanism, relying on the institutions of the State, to make decisions that are totally contrary to democracy, popular and electoral representation. ”.
He expressed the total support from the MAS to the National Primary Commission, respect for the results and María Corina Machado who obtained the overwhelming majority of the votes. “We reject all the arbitrary actions of the government and that according to our account, they are going through step 42 of the authoritarian route to prevent there from being an electoral, peaceful, democratic and alternative solution here.”
On the other hand, he insisted on what he defined in the philosophy of the Barinas path as a way out of the claims of the national government where “in the face of every barbarity, every outrage that the government commits in the public institutions it controls, there is a response that tells it, as you want but let’s move forward. Do you change the elections for me, change the candidate for me or do you end the primary process for me? “Let’s see how you are going to prevent it, if tomorrow we decide to go to another Primary and instead of two and a half million, five million Venezuelans go to vote in response to the atrocities that the government has been committing.”
“What do we Venezuelans have left at this moment? Responding by saying that we insist on the electoral path, on the political struggle and on seeking a path that allows the government’s intention to end the electoral route to be defeated in a democratic, peaceful and constitutional manner, is the way in which we must prevent it.” , he concluded.
