Venezuela's Chávez calls for debate on the construction of the homeland
He invited the opposition to join the process intended to outline the 2013-2019 Socialist Development Plan of the Nation
He invited the opposition to join the process, which he defined as a "general call to the people to join the debate on the construction of the homeland." He also remarked that middle-income households and professionals could make valuable contributions to the debate.
He added that the country "is in need of a serious and responsible opposition," although it seems said opposition "has missed all its chances." The Venezuelan president asserted that opposition leaders have been lying about his Second Socialist Development Plan of the Nation 2013-2019.
Chávez stressed it is not true he intends to eliminate mayors and governors' offices in Venezuela. "Will they lie again? Do they think they can fool the people?" he asked.

The story could have been different. On April 12, 2014, university students led a march to the Attorney General Office in order to submit concrete requests in regards to security and to demand the release of a group of youngsters detained in Táchira state.
