Carlos Malamud: 'Hugo Chávez had a stronger leadership attitude that Maduro "

President Nicolás Maduro, Hugo Chávez heir, wanted to follow in his footsteps with the vote for the Constituent National Assembly of Venezuela, but the result has left dormant decreased Chavista support. On Sunday, more than half of voters stayed home and showed their rejection of the president. "Hugo Chávez was popular and had a leadership attitude much stronger than Maduro," says ABC Latin American researcher at the Elcano Royal Institute, Carlos Malamud. He adds that the current president inherited the move but "without own skills." Eighteen years ago, Chavez called for a referendum to strengthen his figure. In it, it impinged on the desire to convene a constituent assembly to create a new legal order and the basis on which such a call would be made. 92.4% endorsed this proposal (had an abstention rate of 62.2%) and in July of that same year, of the 131 members who had to choose, 125 corresponded to the candidates supported by Chavez and only six opponents managed a hole in the institution. A tactic that wanted to play Maduro voting on Sunday that was made in another context in which this consultation is not shuffled. "Chavez controlled at that time all of his political movement and today Chavismo is more divided, so it may be that in the future the Assembly having the witness against on all institutions to take any action against the president himself," he says Malamud. Although even this outcome is a hypothesis, what is certain is that at least ten dead of election day, and increase to 114 the number of victims since the beginning of protests in Venezuela against the regime Maduro, what It is putting on show the complicated situation of Venezuelans. Shots and teargas Sunday filled the streets of all cities in Venezuela to disperse the crowd that wanted to concentrate to protest the holding of the constituent. The researcher, without knowing the official data and "not manipulated" the outcome, said that the vote has not helped to calm the situation in Venezuela, rather "the gravel in a steady deterioration". Among other factors, the electoral system chosen has given priority to rural areas at the expense of urban areas. Nuances that influence the tension that exists in the country. So the only thing left is to wait for the evolution of situción in the coming months.
