Deputy Carlos Valero, a member of the Foreign Policy Commission of the National Assembly (NA) believes that the President in Charge, Juan Guaidó, should continue to lead Parliament during the next session that begins on January 5, 2020.
“In my opinion, Guaidó’s re-election as president of the National Assembly is a fact. The challenge is for it to be an unanimous decision of the Unity (parties) in favor of advancing in the struggle for political change in the country,” said the parliamentarian.
Valero highlighted the advances that the National Assembly has achieved in the restitution of Venezuelan democracy, among them, unmasking Nicolas Maduro’s regime before the governments of the world, the recovery of state assets, the recognition of more than 60 countries of the parliamentary government, the reincorporation of Venezuela to the Inter-American System and the attention of millions of Venezuelan migrants in the world through the work of ambassadors appointed by Guaidó’s presidency.
He also denounced that there is a campaign by the regime to buy the conscience of some parliamentarians with the aim of dividing the democratic coalition within the National Assembly.
“The evil capacity of a corrupt and inhumane regime can never be underestimated, but the country can be certain that the vast majority of its representatives are aligned with the full recovery of our Constitution and will not allow themselves to be bribed,” he said.
The congressman also acknowledged the weaknesses in the way to achieve the proposed objectives. He considered that the Unity Parties should strengthen to confront the regime, as well as reviewing the lessons learned to achieve free presidential elections and later the re-institutionalization of the country.
“Today we have a coalition of allied countries and governments that support the National Assembly and all Venezuelans inside and outside the country. Today the regime is more isolated, while we, closer to the dawn of a new Venezuela,” he concluded.
