The Washington Post called the president in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, “the man of the hour” after his participation in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he detailed to the world and business leaders the political, social and humanitarian crisis caused by Maduro’s dictatorship in Venezuela.
During his speech, the head of state said that “he is fighting against a criminal conglomerate that protects guerrilla groups such as the ELN (National Liberation Army), the FARC, Hezbollah cells and has destroyed the productive capacity of the country, which has established a repressive apparatus that pursues, that kills; and yet we are here to tell you that we have the capacity to rebuild Venezuela.”
In addition, President (E) Guaidó asked those present not to leave Venezuela behind. “We need your support in this fight to regain your freedom.”
The Venezuelan president asked the nations of the world to impose greater sanctions on Maduro and his key allies, while indicating that he “did not want to see any foreign military intervention in the country’s affairs and that the main objective of his movement was to achieve a transparent and free presidential election.”
“More people have left Venezuela than Syria,” he said during a speech, referring to the more than 5 million Venezuelans were forced to leave the country as its economy emptied. “We are not at war, there are no bombs, but we feel the cries of our people,” he concluded.
