Venezuela after Chavez - Boston 24 Octubre 2013 - 06:31pm
We are pleased to invite you to a conversation with Ramon Guillermo Aveledo, Executive Secretary of the Democratic Unity Platform, the so called Mesa de la Unidad Democratica (MUD, for its acronym in Spanish) – the Venezuelan umbrella organization that supported candidate Henrique Capriles in the last two presidential elections. Mr. Aveledo has been a key figure in building a unified force of all Venezuelan opposition political parties to restore democracy and the rule of law in Venezuela. He is a former congressman from the state of Lara (1994-1998), elected in that period as the Chamber of Deputies’ President (equivalent to the Speaker of the House in the US). Previously, he had served as President Luis Herrera Campins’ Secretary of the Presidency (1979 - 1984).
