Venezuelan ministries - a glimpse (I)

Here you have a glimpse of the thirty-two ministers in Venezuela under Madurism. In dark green, ministers who were military coup mongers in 1992. In light green there is a minister who is the son of such a military. The age field is in red if the minister is a woman. There are really strange ministries. Ernesto Villegas Poljak, for instance, has the ministry for the Revolutionary Transformation of Caracas. In reality that ministry is just a parallel government to deviate the money that should go to the Mayor of Caracas, who is an opposition politician. The strange thing: Villegas is lefty because his parents were communists...communists who were jailed by Pérez Jiménez, a right-winged military Hugo Chávez admired a lot.

As you see, Chavistas feel the need to have separate ministries for air and water transportation and for land transportation or for electricity or for jails. When Chávez came to power he said he would reduce ministries to fight inefficiency and bureaucracy but what he did was to triple their number. Maduro has continued that tradition. At the end this group will say XXI Century "Socialism" came down because of bureaucracy, "a problem of capitalism". That's the way the extreme left react.
