Henrique Capriles is a lawyer, politician, and two-time presidential candidate who will represent his party, Primero Justicia, in Venezuela’s opposition primary elections on October 22. Capriles’ experience as a public official includes serving as Mayor of Baruta and Governor of Miranda, as well as the youngest president of the Chamber of Deputies in Venezuela’s previous bicameral legislature.

What are Capriles’ policy proposals to address Venezuela’s political and economic reality? What is needed from the international community in order to see a free and fair electoral process in 2024? Why is the opposition choosing to participate in elections despite Venezuela’s authoritarian reality?
