Who is Jacqueline Faría?

Jacqueline Faría is a Venezuelan politician. She is the Head of Government of the Venezuelan Capital District. She was previously the head of the state mobile phone company Movilnet Minister of Environment and Natural Resources, and head of Caracas' water company, Hidrocapital. She is a hydraulic civil engineer by profession.

After the election of Antonio Ledezma as Metropolitan Mayor of Caracas, the Venezuelan National Assembly passed a Capital District Law on April 30, 2009 that transferred most functions, funding, and personnel to the control of Jacqueline Faría, an official directly appointed by Hugo Chavez. A legal challenge was filed and a request was filed with the National Electoral Council to hold a referendum, but these did not stop the transfer. Opponents of Chavez described the move as a deliberate negation of the popular vote, while supporters described the political and budgetary reorganization as an "act of justice" for Libertador Bolivarian Municipality, the largest and poorest of the five municipalities making up Caracas.

In 2009 Faría was also for a time President of the state telephone company CANTV.
