New rounds of dialogue will be convened with political and social sectors of the country

This Tuesday, the president of the National Assembly (AN), Jorge Rodríguez, announced that the special parliamentary Commission for Dialogue and Reconciliation will convene new rounds of talks with all political, social and economic sectors of the country.

In statements to the media at the Federal Legislative Palace in Caracas, he specified that these meetings will result in the “reformatting” planted by the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, “So that everyone is present in that dialogue,” said Rodríguez.

We propose that all political sectors should participate in the dialogue. The dialogue begins today. For the reformatting of the dialogue there must be an inclusive dialogue, that we are all represented. A political map, the photo after the parliamentary elections and the mega-elections must be taken into account”, added the deputy.

He explained that there are three points agreed: To incorporate all sectors of society, for all political parties to have the right to participate, and to accept a proposal from the national president to hold an intensive round of consultations and meetings.

The consultations and requests for meetings will be with the so-called Unitary Platform, all the leaders of the opposition and organizations of the Simón Bolívar Great Patriotic Pole (GPPSB). For these days, Fedecamaras (Trade Chamber) and the working class will also be summoned to debate their true expectations.

Release of Alex Saab:

Regarding the dialogue table in Mexico, the parliamentarian pointed out that as a result of these consultations, the format for the talks will be agreed and that there have been no changes in the demand for the release of diplomat Alex Saab.

“We have said in all the forums and meetings that Alex Saab is a full member of the delegation and that what happened – his kidnapping by Cape Verde and the United States – directly attacked the development of the dialogue in Mexico”, he said.

It was an affront against diplomatic work and dialogue, there have been no changes in that regard, we are assisted by the legal reason of international law”, he emphasized.

On March 8, President Maduro announced the reactivation of the national dialogue process with all sectors of the country for peace and the recovery of the nation:

We are going to reformat the national dialogue process and we are going to a broader and more inclusive process, which reaches out to all Venezuelans,” he pointed out and ratified his willingness to advance in respectful conversations that seek peace.
