Caracas, March 21 (RHC)-- Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro accepted on Wednesday to be the candidate of the leftist political parties that make up the Great Simon Bolivar Patriotic Pole for the presidential elections of July 28.

The Bolivarian leader held a meeting with the representatives of the 11 parties that make up the Great Patriotic Pole at the Teresa Carreño Theater, in Caracas and highlighted the great union that exists among the progressive forces.

"A great union of the left, of the progressive, anti-imperialist, popular, patriotic, nationalist forces, of those of us who truly defend democracy against the fascist threat that they intend to make from Argentina with (Javier) Milei, or is it that you believe or want that in Venezuela an extremist right-wing formula such as Milei's is imposed? Or do you want an extremist right-wing formula like (Jair) Bolsonaro to come to Venezuela? Or do you want the political power in Venezuela to be taken by a puppet of Álvaro Uribe Vélez, of Iván Duque and of the Colombian oligarchy?", he declared.

In addition, he sent a message to the surnames (extreme right) and the oligarchy, "in Venezuela they will not return and the Great Simon Bolivar Patriotic Pole is going to be on top with all the united force of the left, of progressivism, of the revolutionary sectors".

"In Venezuela, the left, the progressives, the revolutionaries, Bolivarians and Chavistas, we are more united than ever in the Great Simon Bolivar Patriotic Pole", assured the Executive.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the following political organizations: Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV), People's Electoral Movement (MEP), Fatherland for All (PPT), Podemos, Tupamaro, Venezuelan Popular Unity (UPV), We Are Venezuela, Alliance for Change, Green Party and Authentic Renewal Organization (ORA).

During the event, President Maduro presented the Plan of the Homeland of the Seven Transformations (7T), a document that was built from the grassroots of the People's Power.

"I brought with me today the first systematized document in my handwriting that has emerged from the consultation, debate and action of our people to build their plan for the future, the 7T Homeland Plan, here it is," he said.

The Venezuelan leader affirmed that they are going to build the Venezuela of power, of economic prosperity because "we have shown that in the face of sanctions and blockades, we have grown and we are going to grow even more, to build the great Venezuela, the Venezuela of union, of sovereignty and prosperity."
