For Cabello, the 21N elections were a great step for peace, as a result of the dialogues promoted by President Nicolás Maduro, and the decision of the opposition to participate.
“I feel an atmosphere of peace and tranquility,” Cabello said. “One feels, little by little, that it is possible to speak with the political adversaries.”
Referring to the possible initiation of a [recall] referendum by the opposition, Cabello pointed out that it would not be easy at all, because they would kill each other along the way.
He asserted that it would be a steep and thorny path. However, he confirmed that the Revolution will always stay within the framework of the Constitution, and will respect any decision taken by the opposition if it is done respecting the rule of law.
