Students march in Venezuela demanding government and opposition achieve results

About 500 Venezuelan students marched in Caracas on Thursday demanding that government and opposition negotiators achieve "results" and provide "solutions." They want an electoral schedule that includes an election for president.

The head of the FCU-UCV university federation of Venezuela, Hasler Iglesias, led the march that began in eastern Caracas and made its way toward one of the election authorities' headquarters in the Libertador district.

"We're demanding elections now, demanding an electoral schedule and demanding results. We don't want to see an agreement among politicians, we want results. That's why today we're out on the street," Iglesias told reporters.

The student leader said that on Thursday similar marches were being held in at least seven locations in the country's interior, all of them with the same destination: regional offices of the National Election Council, or CNE.
