CARACAS (ACI Prensa) - Los obispos fueron galardonados en la categoria "Integridad Democratica" junto a sacerdote jesuita Luis Ugalde. El premio fue otorgado por el Centro de Estudios Politicos y de Gobierno (CEPYG) de la Universidad Catolica Andres Bello.

El Presidente de la CEV, Mons. Jose Luis Azuaje, recibio el premio en nombre del Episcopado. "Como Conferencia Episcopal Venezolana nos sentimos realmente comprometidos al recibir este galardon de la Universidad Catolica Andres Bello, del Centro de Estudios Politico y de Gobierno, es un estimulo para seguir trabajando".

"No solo somos los obispos, hay tantas personas que estan trabajando por el bienestar del pueblo venezolano, por la busqueda de la libertad anhelada para todo el pueblo, tambien por la promocion de la dignidad de la persona humana", expreso Mons. Azuaje.

En una nota de prensa, la CEV senalo que con este galardon se reconoce la integridad del Episcopado "en su infatigable labor humanitaria, acompanada por la lucha firme en pro de la construccion de un liderazgo social y por el reclamo incesante del respeto al poder soberano del pueblo".

Mons. Azuaje, tambien Arzobispo de Maracaibo, expreso el deseo de los obispos de compartir este reconocimiento "con este pueblo que ha sido tan noble, un pueblo valeroso, un pueblo que realmente ha sabido dar, como decimos en Venezuela, ďż˝~la tallaďż˝ en los momentos cruciales, en los momentos necesarios".

"Pedimos a Dios que nos siga dando la alegria, el gozo, pero sobre todo esa parresia, esa fuerza del Espiritu Santo para seguir al servicio de este pueblo nuestro, que es un pueblo que realmente necesita muchisimo de la ayuda de todos y, entre todos vamos a lograr que la libertad, el bienestar, este presente en cada hogar, en cada persona", indico.

Ademas de "Integridad Democratica", tambien se galardonaron a la ProdaVinci, la organizacion CEDICE y el periodista Cesar Miguel Rondon en la categoria "Libertad de Pensamiento"; y en "Hacedores de Democracia" se reconocio la labor del Foro Penal y de Maria Corina Machado.

El CEPYG es una dependencia academica de la Facultad de Derecho de la Universidad Catolica Andres Bello, fundada el 29 de enero de 2013 que tiene el proposito de contribuir al desarrollo de una cultura ciudadana, asi como al mejoramiento de la gestion publica y la gerencia politica orientada hacia el fortalecimiento de la gobernabilidad democratica. Para el logro de este objetivo, el Centro de Estudios Politicos desarrolla sus actividades bajo tres lineas estrategicas: investigacion, formacion e incidencia politica.
