Broad national support for dialogue forces MUD to rethink their stance

Given the broad national and international support for a dialogue in Venezuela, promoted by the President of the Republic, Nicolas Maduro, factors of the self-called Democratic Unity Board (MUD) have been forced to rethink their refusal to a dialogue “In order to avoid being seen as a hostile movement on a demand for a meeting of this magnitude,” said journalist Jose Vicente Rangel.
In the “Confidentials” section of his “José Vicente Hoy” (José Vicente Today) program, broadcast by the private channel Televen this Sunday, the journalist made an exception on that so far the sector within the MUD which is the most reluctant to accept a dialogue is the “Accion Democratica” (AD) party and its spokesman , Henry Ramos Allup, who refuses to hold meetings in the Dominican Republic, where have been developed the first approaches, and where is required to put other actors as mediators.
President Maduro has called for a dialogue on a sustained basis to seek for an agenda of peace, work and national unity, and called directly on the oppositionist Ramos Allup and the rest of the leadership of the right wing to cease their violent attacks, in order to allow Venezuela to become an economic power with all the opportunities and potential it has.
The process for the realization of dialogue has the support of the former presidents José Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain; Leonel Fernandez of the Dominican Republic, and Martin Torrijos of Panama, as well as the Union of South American Nations (Unasur).
At the session of last June 23, in which the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, presented a report on the alleged economic and social situation in Venezuela, with which he sought to justify the request for the application the Democratic Charter against Venezuela, the member countries of the organization supported the dialogue.
