Rocío San Miguel (Caracas, 1966) studied the military sector of Venezuela for years. She is a lawyer, executive director of the NGO Control Ciudadano, and a reference when it comes to deciphering the hermetic Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB). According to the expert, the South American country is consolidating a real alternative power unseen in the opposition since the presidential election of 2013, incarnated by former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles, and impacting the barracks. "It is a clear and transparent option, capable of bringing together the leadership of the opposition behind it. That did not exist six years ago, this is very important for the military. We have demonstrations and a critical mass in the streets, often oversized, and in many cases the FANB has shown a willingness not to repress. "
 San Miguel refers to the "interim" president Juan Guaidó, who tries a rapprochement with the soldiers through his speech and political project. His promise is to apply an Amnesty Law to challenge Nicolás Maduro's hegemony, but the high command rejected the offer and ratified his support for the Chavez leader. For now, the pressure increases on the troops and uncertainty prevails in the political struggle.
