"Without any doubt… I believe I'll be able to save all the best that there is in our country", Ramirez told Venezuelan news website El Pitazo, when asked if he would like to run for the presidency.
Ramirez voiced the belief that neither legitimate President Nicolas Maduro nor self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido was authorised to legitimately govern Venezuela.
"Let's call on the people to hold a free, competitive, and democratic election in order to restore Venezuela and save it from the tragedy, which they both represent", he added.
Venezuela is currently going through a political crisis, with Guaido having declared himself the country's interim president on 23 January. His move received support from the United States and a number of allies, while Maduro accused Washington of staging a coup.
