Mesa de la Unidad Democrática, 2017

Committee Description

The Mesa de la Unidad Democrática (MUD) is a catch-all electoral alliance of Venezuelan political parties that was formed in 2008 as opposition to then-President Hugo Chavez’s United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV). The MUD became the largest group in the Venezuelan National Assembly in the 2015 parliamentary election, putting an end to sixteen years of PSUV rule of the country’s parliament.

The committee is set in 2017, a pivotal point in Venezuelan government and politics. The country is in the midst of yet another economic crisis, and the people are protesting against President Nicolás Maduro and his unpopular authoritarian reign. Venezuela is at a crossroads, and the decisions made by the leaders of la Mesa de la Unidad Democrática will definitely leave their marks on the nation’s future.

Venezuela 2017 is an advanced committee. Prior experience in MUN and debate is highly recommended; however, anyone with interest or strong delegating skills may participate if they wish to.
