In this article the political competition in Venezuela is analysed in order to evaluate its possibilities to stablish a relatively stable party system and to organize the Venezuelan political life. It studies the level of ideological structuration and programmatic distinctions of some parties related to other parties and groups, as dimensions that contributes to the citizens' electoral choice. The data become from the research "Parliamentary elites in Latin America", directed by Manuel Alcântara Sáez, in the Institute for Iberoamerica and Portugal Studies, Universidad de Salamanca.

Keywords : Political competition; ideological structuration; parliamentary elites; Venezuela.
