He also announced 74 thousand People’s Power organizations and ten thousand loads of solution maps from different communities and neighborhoods of our country, out of the more than 46 thousand existing in the nation.

“Venezuela is stating its position on the change in the public policies design of a revolutionary government. It says that public policies are designed with the people, directly at the grassroots, and they decide the direction we should take.”

Menendez assured that direct democracy is the fundamental theme of the Bolivarian Revolution and that is why it is so important to articulate with the organized people and “the maps of solutions are as transcendent as they are important,” he said.

He stressed that one of the fundamental elements of the first government of President Nicolas Maduro was the collective mandate to assume the street governments as a doctrine, also unity, “because, without unity, the vision of invasion in our territory would have advanced.”
