U.S. Senator Rick Scott said that the Venezuelan people know that Nicolas Maduro is a murdereous dictator and he spoke out about the false appointment of the dictatorship’s National Electoral Council.
“The appearance of democracy is not democracy. The people of Venezuela know that you are a murderous dictator,” he said, denouncing the dictatorship’s attempt to show a false political image of the country.
Scott denounced the fact that Maduro’se regime has the objective of manipulating the eventual elections in Venezuela.
“No one believes this nonsense by Nicolas Maduro. He has just formed an ‘electoral council’ aligned with the regime to manipulate the elections,” he said.
For his part, Mike Pompeo, the U.S. Secretary of State, also condemned the appointment of a new NEC directive, asserting that it has been imposed by the government to “steal democracy away from the country.”
No one buys this nonsense from @NicolasMaduro.
He just formed a regime-aligned “electoral council” to rig the elections. The appearance of democracy is not democracy. The people of #Venezuela know that you are a murderous dictator. https://t.co/6PxELeo8ou
