We introduce a new hybrid iterative scheme for finding a common element of the set of common fixed points of two countable families of relatively quasi-nonexpansive mappings, the set of the variational inequality for an α-inverse-strongly monotone operator, the set of solutions of the generalized mixed equilibrium problem and zeros of a maximal monotone operator in the framework of a real Banach space. We obtain a strong convergence theorem for the sequences generated by this process in a 2 uniformly convex and uniformly smooth Banach space. The results presented in this paper improve and extend some recent results.
