Time for decision-making

Beyond legal considerations -thoroughly explained by experts and analysts, Venezuela has come to an odd, inconvenient operational standstill both in the private and public sectors due to the legal uncertainty that surrounds the current state of affairs. Not even the scenario outlined by President Hugo Chávez last December 8 is envisaged. In a nutshell, there is no president. In his stead, there are verbal reports on meetings, gatherings, government cabinets and even hour-long debates that translate into government instructions and guidelines allegedly issued by the President admitted to hospital.

Nobody knows for sure whether such reports are true or otherwise. Nobody has seen President Chávez, except for his close relatives. Legal uncertainty existed in the past, but it has mushroomed, even affecting debt operations to be performed by the government by reason of bilateral agreements with some countries.

We are going into the last month of the first quarter, and this unusual, blurred relationship between people and their top authority continues. With all due respect and consideration for the President, the country has become a sort of administrative brokerage that spawns more questions than answers.

Besides the President's absence, Venezuela is going through a difficult situation, from the point of view of economy and governance. Therefore, institutions need to be restored to normal. A country having serious intentions to reach acceptable levels of quality of life and development will never move forward amidst such a degree of uncertainty and insecurity.

It is time for decision-making.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
