Rangel stressed respect for the Constitution by Governors of AD

The swearing in before the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) of the elected governors of the Tachira, Mérida, Anzoátegui and Nueva Esparta states, postulated by the opposition (right wing) Acción Democrática (Democratic Action) (AD) party, «revealed the will to stand for the law and to renounce the concept (existing on the right wing) of a permanent subversive stronghold», said Venezuelan political analyst José Vicente Rangel.

At the beginning of his Sunday program, «José Vicente Hoy» (José Vicente Today), broadcast by Televen, he mentioned that the political opposition to access a popularly elected office «can not continue being, as it has been until now, a way to build bastions of resistance and aggression. against the central Government», as well as to alter the constitutional order, hinder public activity and to break the peace and stability of the Republic, he stressed.

«Such an attitude is contrary to what the Bolivarian Constitution establishes in terms of collaboration between institutions and public powers», added Rangel.

He indicated that in order to gain power, the Venezuelan opposition developed mechanisms and tactics such as the «guarimbas» (street riots) that between April and June of this year left a balance of more than 100 Venezuelans killed, more than a thousand injured and millionaire damages to public and private goods.

Given this plan, the response of the people has been forceful, demonstrating its democratic maturity and its respect for the Magna Carta with its participation in the election of the National Constituent Assembly, on July 30, which led to the defeat of subversive plans «through the use of legal and constitutional resources available to the State.»

Hence, the recognition of respect for the popular will of the four Governors sworn in before the ANC, stressed Rangel.
