1. President Chávez Frías promoted the idea of a Constituent Assembly in order to create a new Constitution in 1999. Such Constitution contains some organizational elements related to the political organization of the civil society that shall be underlined, because they act against the formation of partisan organizations in Venezuela . For example:
2. That attempt to eliminate the parties is consistent with the ideology of
President Chávez Frías, inspired by the recommendations
of Norberto Ceresole, an argentine sociologist, who proclaims
a direct relation between leader-army-population without the
mediation of the parties.
3. Only some rank and file organizations have succeeded, in popular sectors,
created for the electoral processes held on August and October
of 2004. Such organizations are the Electoral Battle Units,
now being transformed in Endogenous Battle Units, encouraged
by the President of the Republic and which claim for a direct
relation with President Chávez Frías, with no
direct subjection whatsoever to the MVR party or to any other
allied party of the Government.
4. Among the parties that support the Government, "Movimiento Quinta República"
(MVR) is the strongest and the most voted of the existing parties
in Venezuela; notwithstanding, it appears that the efforts towards
its consolidation have found internal disputes, of which the
most evident expression was that
occurred with the recent internal process held to select the
candidates for "Movimiento Quinta República" (MVR). Within
this process, a confrontation took place between the MVR and
some allies, which ended in violence, fraud accusations and
actions before the "TSJ" (Supreme Court of Justice), as well
as hunger strikes.
