The European Parliament approved this Thursday a resolution in which it repudiates Maduro dictatorship’s Chavista assembly and ratifies its recognition of the president (e) of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, and the National Assembly elected in 2015.
“As long as truly free, credible, inclusive, transparent and fully democratic elections are not held in Venezuela, the National Assembly elected in December 2015, its president Juan Guaidó and its Delegate Commission also headed by Juan Guaidó will continue to be considered, as the last free expression of Venezuelans in an electoral process, as the only legitimate democratic representative political body in Venezuela,” reads the resolution approved by a majority in the European Parliament.
They also asked the Council and the member states of the European Union to unequivocally recognize the constitutional continuation of the legitimate National Assembly of Venezuela of 2015 and the legitimate interim president of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó.
Similarly, they denounced that the fraudulent process organized on December 6th by Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship and stated “the electoral process did not comply with internationally accepted conditions and standards, nor with Venezuelan laws, therefore it was not free, nor fair, and does not represent the will of the Venezuelan people.”
The European Parliament reiterated that “the only sustainable solution to the multidimensional Venezuelan crisis that affects the entire region is a political, peaceful and democratic path, through credible, inclusive, free, fair and transparent presidential, parliamentary, regional and local elections that respect international standards, with guarantees of equal conditions and unhindered participation for all political parties and under objective international observation.”
Finally, they stressed that “they will remain especially alert to any acts of repression, particularly against members of the democratic forces of Venezuela.”
