The XII National Conference of the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV).

The acting president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, stressed the need for the Venezuelan revolutionary forces to pool their strength to continue building the political model bequeathed by Commander Hugo Chavez Frias.

“We need strength in this hour of history to take the nation on our shoulders and deliver this historic task that Hugo Chavez has given to our people and that we assume fully,” Maduro said at the XII National Conference of the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV), which took place in the Teatro Cantaclaro in Caracas.

“We are looking for moral strength, spiritual strength, the historic power to jump-start the nation-building machine that our Commander has left,” said Maduro, who was supported by the PCV as a candidate for the presidential elections of April 14.

He noted that through the political project of President Chavez Frias all revolutionary struggles could be channeled in a big and correct way. “Over the centuries, the struggles of revolutionaries have incurred great sacrifices and pains, and the PCV is example of that,” he said.

He also announced that the PCV was asked to join the new Political-Military Steering Committee of the Bolivarian Revolution.

Maduro said that every March 5, the Venezuelan people will remember the legacy of the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chavez Frias. “We will remember for years and decades the man who has left us physically, but continues between us as guardian spirit of our people, our beloved and eternal commander,” he said.
