Bolivarian Republic

Education, health and the documentation have been affected by the bias that comes from the list. In 2007, three years after the list was made public, the President of Sincor, Ysaac Donis, acknowledged that for the dismissal of four employees process signatures against Chavez had been used as a parameter. He explained that all new income should pass through the filter of the Tascon list and mentioned that those people hired in time given and that it had been signed against the President would not be renewed. But the famous list has poisoned democracy in both directions; in the veins of Venezuela runs a poisoned conflict that pits two factions first materialised with names and surnames. The basic principle of the suffrage has been broken: the secret; and is that the list Tascon is within the reach of anyone in search engines like google. The Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela contains in its article 5 that sovereignty resides in the people, who exercise it directly in the form provided for in the Constitution intransferiblemente. This form is that of a free, universal, direct and secret suffrage (art.

63). Disobey these premises is undeniably an attack against the foundations of the constitutional system, and a mockery of any idea of a democratic State. Aside from the Hugo Chavez’s Government, whose legitimacy is not questioned in this article, to talk of democracy in Venezuela we must do so with a small mouth. Continuous referendums qualifying a system that becomes blurred with the continuous confrontation and the breakdown of individual ideological mutism. Suspicion and resentment, are the real leaders of the Venezuelan nation.

We must not forget that the universal suffrage does not guarantee by itself only the feasibility and effectiveness of a State; but that they are citizens, authentic supporters of the defense of democracy who must promote the essential values for the restoration of true popular sovereignty. The people should not go to the polls in fear. But while the names of those who pay are included in a list; Venezuela will vote cautiously. The Tascon list has left democracy unveiled.
