Leftist Candidate for Mayor of Caracas Challenging United Socialist Party

There are two extremes when it comes to left  loyalty to a movement. One extreme is mindless loyalty at any cost to a party. The other extreme is to say and do things publicly that can be used by centrists and the right-wing to undermine the movement. Eduardo Saman claims that in between these two extremes there is discipline. This is a good article about why he is running for mayor of Caracas.
