Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said that in the first quarter of 2015 he will delegate political and social agendas to his vice-presidents and ministers in order to win the economic battle that rages in the country.
Latam All political, social and government agendas
The declaration was made after a march to commemorate 15 years of the approval of the Constitution and repudiate the "imperialism" of U.S. sanctions on the nation.
Maduro affirmed that during the first three months of next year, the people will see him visiting factories, ports and fields as well as the country’s borders to defeat the criminal mafia that has caused what he called an economic war in Venezuela.
He also sought the support of the working classes, businessmen, "patriots" and the youth for his plan.
"We are going to convert 2015 into a productive year," Maduro said.
The Venezuelan government claims that it faces, among others, an economic war encouraged by the opposition, private businessmen and foreign governments seeking to destabilize Maduro and force his exit. ■
