Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro has called on the progressive forces in the country to strengthen national unity in the face of the governor’s elections scheduled for this year.
The President urged, during a meeting with the national leadership of the Socialist United Party of Venezuela (PSUV), to struggle to master the electoral mechanism to ensure a new victory in the elections, after securing the parliamentary majority in the last legislative elections.
Maduro invited other organizations allied with the Great Patriotic Pole. “We have a goal for this year and we must work to achieve it and unify efforts to win the country’s 23 provinces in the upcoming elections,” the head of state stressed.
The President of the United Socialist Party of the revolution also denounced the existence of factions that stir up divisions within the revolutionary forces, and called for strengthening unity in defense of the legacy of the Bolivarian leader Hugo Chávez (1954-2013).
Maduro called on the leaders of the grassroots and all fighters of the PSUV to indicate the division with names and titles, to preserve the party’s role as the main leading organization in the revolutionary process.
Likewise, the President of Venezuela announced the start of a new registration period in the country’s main political organization, which will be implemented electronically, as part of the organizational procedures of the electoral mechanism.
In the legislative elections that took place on December 6, the Unified Socialist Party and its allies from the Great Patriotic Pole achieved a parliamentary majority in the new National Assembly, with 256 elected deputies, out of a total of 277.
