From the Miraflores Palace, he recalled that “socialism in the territorial sphere is socialism with the people, it is turning the people into the greatest force for creating this project on Bolivarian socialism. Socialism is not built with four lawyers. Socialism is built with the people, socialism is built in the commune, in the community, ” said the Venezuelan president.
He added that the achievements of the communal economy, the People’s Power and the progress of the communities that have managed to establish the territorial organization must be shown and he also called for consolidating self-government by attending to and solving all the problems of the people within the guidelines of the Communal Offensive Productive Plan 2020. “There are great achievements that we must make visible, we must recognize the work that is done from the revolutionary trenches,” he said.
