The 50th General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) was held this Wednesday. During this session was approved the resolution confirming the electoral farce orchestrated by Nicolas Maduro’s regime in Venezuela for December 6th.
“The lack of minimum democratic conditions to guarantee free, fair and transparent elections in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela”, is the title of the resolution.
During the session there were 21 votes in favor, 4 against and 9 abstentions.
The resolution was issued by Colombia and states that elections “will depend on the establishment of the necessary conditions of freedom, justice, impartiality and transparency, guaranteeing the participation of all political actors and citizens, the liberation of political prisoners, with reasonable time limits for their holding and must have independent and credible international electoral observation.
The same Colombian commission explained that, in spite of this resolution, it is already late to send observation missions to Venezuela since they must remain in the country during the entire period of preparation of the elections, but the term has already expired.
Likewise, it rejected the illegal designation of the members of the National Electoral Center (CNE) by the illegitimate Supreme Court of Justice. “In Venezuela there are no minimum conditions for an election, but Maduro is anxious to do his fraud in December,” said the Colombian delegation.
The US representative pronounced himself after the vote and encouraged free elections in Venezuela. He also recognized the National Assembly, led by Juan Guaidó, as the only legitimate power in the country.
Likewise, the representative of Brazil, qualified what the Maduro regime intends to do as “fraud”. He also recalled that the Venezuelan dictatorship continues to persecute and execute those who confront them.
