Venezuelan VP: Opposition Unified Democratic Panel must face the music
"The opposition has been facing a political and electoral downfall, and it does not want to face the music. It seeks to pretend that nothing has happened," the Venezuelan vice-president stated as he referred to the Opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD)
Maduro remarked that the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) "must face the Venezuelan people." They must admit that if the Government had lost the two electoral processes held in 2012, its leaders would have resigned.
The vice-president said, "The opposition has been facing a political and electoral downfall and it does not want to face the music. It seeks to pretend that nothing has happened," Maduro stated.
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.
