Survey shows majority support for anti-blockade law in Venezuela

Caracas, Oct 5 (Prensa Latina) Around 93 percent of Venezuelans support the approval of the Anti-Blockade Law presented to the debate of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) by the President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro.

According to figures released by the Executive, to date 12 million people responded to the survey published on the Sistema Patria digital platform regarding the impact of the unilateral coercive measures implemented by the United States against the South American nation.

More than 92 percent of the participants in the survey expressed their rejection of the economic, financial and commercial blockade against Venezuela, while nine out of 10 people demanded the lifting of the so-called sanctions.

President Nicolas Maduro reiterated on Sunday the call to the ANC to thoroughly debate the draft of the Anti-Blockade Law, a legal instrument designed to allow the adoption of new mechanisms for the economic revival and liberation of the country’s productive forces.

Maduro explained that the legislation proposes strategies adjusted to the principles and values of the Bolivarian process, to generate wealth and improve the quality of life of the population, mainly affected by the impact of the economic asphyxiation actions adopted by Washington.

Once approved by the National Assembly, the legal instrument will be sent to the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice to certify its adherence to constitutionality, said the head of state.

The Anti-Blockade Law aims to improve the nation’s income and create adequate incentives under flexible controls to stimulate internal economic activity and external productive alliances.
