Well, that’s exactly what we’re about to see on October 7th.
In the event, among the seventeen parties that went for the Tarjeta Única were all of the main Puntofijo era parties…while the main post-1999 parties (UNT and PJ) stayed out.
The result is, from my point of view, unexpectedly positive. Capriles supporters will not be faced with the – to many of us, downright offensive – sight of his face next to an AD tarjeta on the ballot. And the MUD’s slow, halting progress towards making people realize that like it or not, the MUD is a political party while the remanents of AD, Copei, MAS, etc. are really factions within that party, marches onward.
