El Universal reports all opposition candidates have confirmed they will take part in the first debate for the primaries on 14 November. This is not just another debate...debates have been so few in Venezuela as snow storms in Mali.
Two questions arise:
- Will candidates really debate or will it be more like "I like you, man", "well, I like YOU more"?
- Will this debate put some pressure on the military autocrat to take part in debates once the candidate for the alternative forces is chosen? So far the caudillo has rejected any debate. He thrives on parallel monologues.
