Morales stressed that we must continue fighting but alongside the people without criticizing and contributing with a strategy “that did not work
Negal Morales, leader of the Democratic Action faction led by Bernabé Gutiérrez, considers that in Venezuela “you survive” and not think that everything in the country “was fixed”, as is currently said in the streets of the country.
«Pretending that three or four concerts are held or saying that Venezuela was fixed is not reality, but we must be fair. The myth that Venezuelans were lazy is a lie,” Morales said in an interview with Globovision.
He stated that with the de facto dollarization in the country, people began to “half breathe” but that later Venezuelans are suffocated again when taxes such as the Tax on Large Transactions are imposed, which in his opinion should only be applied when large goods like a car and a house are bought, but not when you buy food.
He believes in the need for clear policies to insert the business community back into the national economy, to return expropriated companies; establish a good political dialogue between the government and the opposition; a clear policy of recovery of public services, among others.
He said that “from the trench” in which he finds himself, you have to continue fighting but alongside the people without criticizing and contributing with a strategy “that did not work and that ended up being something that led to insurrectionalism”, for which he made a called on other Democratic Action actors to put aside grudges in favor of reconciliation in the white awning ahead of the 2024 elections.
“People don’t want a fight. He wants his problems to be solved », she stressed.
Negal Morales believes that today one should agree more with ideas than with “particularities” and that time proved right those sectors that appealed for participation in electoral processes and in dialogue to settle differences.
He regretted that the Democratic Action leadership will be renewed after 21 years on June 11 and affirmed that the democratization of the party must be allowed and that, among other things, the grassroots leadership be allowed to occupy spaces.
He expressed that the internal elections of Democratic Action “are not an ultimate goal, but a step” to make that organization something better and that the grassroots militants be taken into account, that they be heard.
