Florida State Senator Rick Scott urged the international community to see Nicolás Maduro as “a tyrant and a dictator.”
These statements were made when reports that reveal that the Cuban Inspired and run Constituent Assembly seeks to advance parliamentary elections in Venezuela, which would dissolve the only democratic body in the country.
“There are reports that Nicolás Maduro is going to dismantle the last democratic institution left in Venezuela. This is Maduro’s last step to silence opposition and dissent”, he said.
The United States has repeatedly called on the European Union to accompany them in pressuring the dictatorship.
