According to him, the implementation of such a plan will bring the opposition, not the authorities, to a standstill.
As Melia says, now is the time for parties to cooperate around specific important issues.
“I think that the parties should cooperate on specific important issues. This position was reinforced in the “National Movement”. It is necessary to achieve a fair and free electoral environment, and then all opposition parties will strengthen individually, especially if we are talking about the future proportional electoral system. A proportional electoral system has been practically the key dream that all generations of the political opposition have been talking about for the past 30 years.
For me, cooperation at this stage is a relationship of a much higher level than even an association of an artificial type. In this sense, if we had chosen majoritarian candidates through primaries last year and the year before, the National Movement would have won everywhere. After all, we knew about this and therefore acted like a gentleman, collectively, making a fair gesture towards other opposition parties. Somewhere it justified itself, but somewhere not. Why do we need to carry out such a project and plan? We want to bring the government into a dead end to get the country out of the dead end. But I believe that the implementation of such a plan will lead to a dead end for the opposition, not the authorities,” Melia said.
