"Communal Power is a power inside the State and, therefore, it has been subject to the guidelines of the Executive Office," said on Wednesday Feliciano Reyna, the president of NGO Sinergia in the forum "Venezuelan politics and construction of majorities Beyond the electoral issue," held at Andrés Bello Catholic University (UCAB).

In Reyna's words, Venezuela undergoes "statization of society" and individual spaces are getting narrower.

UCAB President José Virtuoso strongly recommended the opposition to tackle the ideological debate to construct majorities and face polarization.

For Pedro Benítez, the Public Policy Coordinator of the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), "the opposition has lately neglected the social work; working in low-income barrios."

Marino González, a researcher into public policies, advised to strengthen "capacity building of party militants to back the society processes."

For his part, Ricardo Villasmil, Ph. D of Economics, postulated that in the past presidential election, "the relationship between poverty and preference grew."

He spelled out that the dissent got a higher profile in higher strata than in lower strata, and he complained about polarization.

To his mind, President Hugo Chávez managed to be reelected due to the soaring public spending and State indebtedness. He lamented that Venezuela is among the countries with the worst indexes of debt, welfare and country risk.

Whose victim am I?

They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag  #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
