3 days before the most important popular consultation in the electoral history of Venezuela, the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, met with the country’s youth to share and continue adding efforts in defense of Essequibo, from the José Joaquín “Papa” Carrillo gym in Miranda state:
“I ask you with love, with faith, with Venezuelan passion, to the youth, to call your pals, your friends, your family, your little nephews, your little nieces and go as a family with all your friends. On Sunday, all the youth to say “yes” five times, for Venezuela, for the effective Guayana, for peace, for love, for life, for joy.”
In this context, the First Combatant woman of the Republic, Cilia Flores de Maduro, addressed a few words of gratitude to the girls for breaking down the meaning of each star represented in the national tricolor:
“We are filled with feelings, we listen to each star as it was forged, which represents for us each of the eight stars on our flag the truth that we are filled with emotion, it gave me a lot of feeling until the eighth star when we heard the eighth star that presents Guayana, which represents our Essequibo.”
She ratified that the patriotic feeling is strengthened with the dynamism and vitality that young people bring to this process:
“It made me want that it was Sunday already, because what I want is to go out and vote to defend Essequibo five times, it is a commitment,” she stated.
She stressed that youth has an extraordinary role in this process, “young people who can now vote are going to feel proud on Sunday and those who cannot vote have to bring their mother, father, siblings, grandparents, “They have to be the driving force in their home so that everyone goes out to vote.”
The Head of State recalled that the electoral system, the most secure in the world, offers simple steps to carry out the process, just by handing over the identity card, the information is corroborated, and then going to the machine and voting “yes” 5 times:
“I go to the ballot box and think about my country, I think about my family, I think about the future. Think about the youth and I say for love of Venezuela, for peace for Essequibo, I voted already!”, the dignitary said.
He also pointed out that those people who do not have an ID have no excuse not to vote on Sunday, since the Administrative Service for Identification, Migration and Immigration (SAIME) carries out a special operation:
“But for anyone who needs to get their ID, there is a special operation, 24 hours a day, until Sunday, at the 129 Saime offices to get their ID.”
He also indicated that those who still do not know where to exercise their right to vote can access the website of the National Electoral Council (CNE).
He concluded by stating that “The united Venezuela will be able to recover its entire map as Venezuela. Long live the youth! Long live the Homeland! “Long live the national union!”
