Would they please make up their minds 

The on again, off again, on again, now maybe off again opposition primaries are becoming something of a joke. Last week the opposition NGO Sumate announced they were off because the opposition candidates hasn't agreed to have them. After a fuss the opposition candidates, Petkoff, Rosales, and Borges met in Zulia and supposedly agreed to hold them.

But then in the past couple of days Primero Justicia, Borge's party, started complaining that they couldn't get an answer from Sumate as to whether or not it would hold them. Yet today, Sumate came out and said the opposition candidates still hadn't agree to primaries and gave them until 5 p.m. on Thursday to come to an agreement or forget about them.

So it appears some of these candidates are talking out of both sides of their mouths - giving press conferences telling everyone that they have agree to primaries yet telling Sumate that they are still not agreeing to participate. Looks like they don't want to participate but don't want to have the bad publicity that comes with saying they don't want to participate. Either that or they are just horribly indecisive in which case what are they doing seeking a decision making job like president for in the first place.
