Capriles Candidacy Depends on Venezuela Local Vote, Ultimas Says
Venezuela’s opposition alliance will probably choose Henrique Capriles Radonski as its presidential candidate should elections be called soon, provided he wins re- election as governor of Miranda state on Dec. 16, Ultimas Noticias reported, citing opposition officials.
If Capriles loses to government candidate Elias Jaua in the vote for governor, the opposition alliance would consider a different candidate in the event of a presidential election, said Pedro Benitez and Simon Calzadilla, according to the Caracas-based newspaper.
