Caracas - The elections slated for next December 6th are centered on the need to propose solutions and make legislations based on the economic problems that exist in Venezuela today.
Candidates related to the Bolivarian Government and also aligned with the opposition coincide in focusing the attention of the next National Assembly, to come into functions on January 5th, 2021, on the economic issue.
The candidate to the legislative body for the Great Patriotic Pole Alexander Vargas posed the question of the recovery of the social economy as a primary task of the deputies.
In statements to Venezolana de Televisión TV channel, the candidate for Caracas indicated that during the campaign proposals from the communities were heard in order to raise them to the parliamentary body, in addition to promoting the so-called Anti-Blockade Law for discussion and consultation by the population.
The legal instrument approved by the National Constituent Assembly establishes mechanisms to generate new income, attract investment and promote the recovery of the national productive apparatus, affected by the impact of the unilateral coercive measures implemented by the United States. In this regard, the candidate for deputy for the 'Venezuela First' party Jose Brito reiterated his willingness to promote a crusade before the international community in rejection of the punitive actions adopted by Washington as part of its policy for a change of regime in Venezuela.
The opposition leader highlighted the political failure of the so-called sanctions, as well as the significant impact on the country's economy and on the living conditions of the Venezuelan population.
