CARACAS, May 08 (MNA) – Most Venezuelans reject the violence promoted by opposition extremists as their method to disagree with the policies of the Bolivarian Government.

Only 19 percent support "guarimbas" (violent actions during popular gatherings), 80% disagree and considers that rejecting terrorism is a citizen's duty, informed Rangel, who quoted the polling company Hinterlaces.
According to the report, the investigation comprised 1,580 interviews in homes throughout Venezuela from April 17 to May 3 and revealed a majority rejection of the attitude of leaders of the coalition Democratic Unity Roundtable and other opposition organizations.
"61 percent supports that those responsible for violent demonstrations should be prosecuted, while 36 do not agree," said the Venezuelan politician and lawyer during his program José Vicente Today, broadcast by the private capital chain Televen.
He also said that "59 percent of respondents do not trust the management of the Venezuelan opposition, 32 percent does trust and 9 percent does not know or did not respond."
"On the other hand, 66 percent approve the holding of presidential elections in 2018, as established in the Constitution of the Republic and 33 percent supports the proposal of some right-wing leaders, who demand the resignation of President Nicolás Maduro," he added.
Rangel also reported that "63 percent of Venezuelans consider the government's possible political dialogue with the opposition to be very important, to address differences and work together for the country's well-being."
Only 22 percent believe that dialogue is not important at all, nine percent consider it important and five percent consider it unimportant, he said.
