National Assembly (NA) deputy Luis Florido said that in view of the various sanctions and the most recent decision by the U.S. Justice Department, which accuses regime officials of turning Venezuela into a narco-state, Nicolás Maduro is technically out of power.
The parliamentarian said that the sanctions against people who have violated human rights and have taken corruption money that could have gone to the Venezuelan people, are in the hands of justice, who will determine according to their investigations, a legal decision and not a political one.
“Nicolas Maduro is out of power even though he has yet to make it concrete because there are many elements of judgment and there is no possibility of return to stay in power,” he said.
These statements were made by the legislator in the program Vladimir a la Carta, this Sunday, where he also expressed that Maduro and his circle do not have the capacity to solve the country’s problems.
“We must remember that besides oil, we were exporting gasoline to a country that does not have the capacity to return to international credit, because Maduro is not recognized by the world and does not have the capacity to feed its people (…) it is a regime that does not have control,” he said.
He also said that the best thing for Venezuela is the National Emergency Plan, without persecution and with an election process that recognizes the vote.
“We are closer than ever to the transition, six to nine months where the pandemic is dealt with, and with the leadership of the NA shape the whole strategy.
Florido lamented that in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, Venezuelans have to suffer from the lack of food, gasoline, and conditions to deal with the virus, as well as the lack of reliable information in such a situation.
“A country without information is simply another backward country in the era of communications. We don’t know how many cases there really are, how many deaths there really are, and how this can get worse,” he said.
He stressed that what we want is to recover the country and for Venezuelans to be able to meet again without hatred in their hearts. “And we have to work hard for so much damage.”
