The president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, who aspires to re-election in October, on Thursday threatened to expropriate those banks and private companies to support the alleged violent plans, according to him, the opposition gears up for election.
Supporters at a rally broadcast on radio and television, Chavez said he is developing “a little list of actions” that could take if the opposition “comes up attack the constitution, the people, institutions and ignore the certain victory the people “in the elections on October 7 against the opposition leader Henrique Capriles.
For example, he said, “I have reports of some banks that support these movements, private banks would not hurt to pass ‘pa’la homeland’ for the people,” he said. “Or some large national and international earn enough money and support the plans of the opposition. It would be wrong with a decree of nationalization of large companies for violating the Constitution and the national plan,” Chavez insisted.
According to the president, “that would lead to a stage of consolidation of the socialist revolution.”
For 13 years in office, Chavez, who has described himself as “radical left” has promoted the nationalization of major industries and threatened to take control of many companies.
Chavez also emphasized that the opposition “has already begun to set the stage for violence” so that “we must alert the world and ourselves.” “There are several elements and think seriously on the stage of bourgeois violence because they do not really believe in democracy,” the president said.
Chavez led a rally in Caracas theater nearly a day after returning from Havana, where he underwent an initial course of radiotherapy to treat the recurrence of a cancer that was diagnosed in 2011 and beyond given in October.
