Chavez Rejects Comparison To Egypt's Mubarak
Chavez reiterated that if there are not real reasons, a revolution like the one lived in Egypt would have never been carried out for 18 days and led to the resignation of President Mubarak, who was almost 30 years in power.
President Hugo Chavez rejected on Sunday the fact that the Venezuelan opposition tries to compare him with the Egyptian ex-president Hosni Mubarak, who relinquished power by a popular revolution.
"I laugh when some brainy analysts of the Venezuelan opposition want to compare my government with that of the the former president Hosni Mubarak in Egypt," Chavez said during his TV and radio program "Alo Presidente” No. 370, held in Ciudad Caribia, state of Vargas, north of Caracas.
"There were a real dictatorship in there, and more than half of the population was living in poverty and extreme poverty, that is the root cause" of the revolution, he said, referring to Egypt. Chavez also warned that "if there there are not real conditions, a revolution can not be planned by phones,Twitter or whatever."
He reiterated that if there are not real reasons, a revolution like the one lived in Egypt would have never been carried out for 18 days and led to the resignation of President Mubarak, who was almost 30 years in power. "Revolutions are born under certain conditions," he stressed and prayed for peace in this African nation and urged people to ''respect the self-determination of the Egyptian people.''
Chavez said Mubarak's decision to hand over power to the military ''is a coup--I do not think that is mentioned in the Egyptian
Constitution, but the Egyptian people will decide.''
