A small portion of opposition parties with little representation has negotiated with the government of Nicolás Maduro a series of measures that have generated confusion inside and outside the country. The regime has aired that the opposition has returned to the negotiating table, something that the interim president has flatly denied Juan Guaidó.
But who is behind the four parties that have agreed to establish a Dialogue Table for Peace? This group of Maduro interlocutors are considered "false opponents" by the bulk of anti-Chavez. MEP Leopoldo López Gil he called the dialogue agreement "mocking the Venezuelan people and, particularly, the world" because he does not have the approval of the true opposition, while the former mayor of Caracas, Antonio Ledezma, He warned that "he joins this parody is turning his back on the Venezuelan people and is shamelessly joining the regime."
Speaking to LA RAZÓN, in Professor Javier Enrique González Reinoza, from the University of Los Andes, he assures that none of the “false opponents” “represents any important sector of the opposition. They are socialists close to Chavism rather than close to the opposition. ”
The parties behind this operation are Movimiento Al Socialismo (MAS), Cambiemos, Soluciones para Venezuela and Avanzada Progresista. The decisions they addressed with the Maduro Government include the return to the National Assembly of more than 50 official deputies. These deputies left Parliament almost three years ago to form the National Constituent Assembly, a parallel legislature that has torpedoed oppositional action. It has also agreed renovation of the Electoral Council and the release of political prisoners. These are the most visible faces of the four matches.
Zambrano Timothy, Party leader Let's change. He started in politics in the historic Democratic Action party. In 2004 he moved to Alianza Bravo Pueblo, then to the Democratic Pole until landing in Un Tiempo Nuevo, the party of Manuel Rosales, which he left in 2018. Friend of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, Zambrano supported Henri Falcón during the 2018 electoral process, considered fraudulent by the international community. He has participated in negotiations with the Maduro regime for the release of political prisoners, such as Rosmit Mantilla, who subsequently accused him of threatening him not to reveal the torture he suffered during his captivity in the jail of the government's political police. During the official act of the announcement of the table, Zambrano said that the signatory parties and the Government have "arranged wills, renounced positions to build, unite and add" after rebelling "in the face of hatred, contempt and anger."
Henri Falcón, of Advanced Progressive (AP). He was mayor and governor of Chavista in 2010 in the state of Lara. Very linked to Hugo Chavez and then to Nicolás Maduro. Some time later he became a dissident Chavista and approached the opposition Mesa of the Democratic Unit. In the 2018 elections, rejected by the international community, Falcón ran as a presidential candidate while the vast majority of opponents resigned to present their candidacy in a boycott of the electoral call. "If those who bet on this negotiation do not represent anyone, or we are not opponents because the real ones only obey certain parties, what is the concern that we influence the course of events, perhaps a minority can collaborate in maintaining the dictatorship ? ", the match has been asked in a message on Twitter.
Claudio Fermin, of Solutions for Venezuela. He was one of the editors of the Constitution that left the Constituent Assembly after the victory of Hugo Chávez. Before, he had been a member of the historic Democratic Action (AD) party and under the banner of that formation he was mayor of Caracas. He has run several times as a candidate for president with little success in the nineties. "We are going to change the unproductive Venezuelan policy," he added in a series of messages on Twitter.
Felipe Mujica, Secretary General of the Movement to Socialism (MAS). Hugo Chavez received the support of this party in the 1999 campaign that led him to win the presidency of Venezuela. In the 2015 parliamentary elections he won no seats. And in the 2018 presidential call they supported Henri Falcón. The MAS was part of the MUD opposition platform for a while, from which it left in 2013, following Maduro's rise to power.
