The Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Affairs, Julio Borges, celebrated this Wednesday the approval in favor of free and transparent presidential elections in Venezuela by the Organization of American States (OAS).
The representative also thanked the recognition of the United Nations Fact-Finding Mission, which shows a systematic attack against the Venezuelan people by Nicolas Maduro’s regime.
“Our greatest recognition to the entire international team for this achievement, especially to Ambassador Gustavo Tarre Briceño,” Borges said this Wednesday through his personal Twitter account.
For his part, the Commissioner for the United Nations (UN), Miguel Pizarro, thanked the international community and the OAS for their struggle in favor of Venezuelan democracy.
“This resolution rejects the electoral fraud called on by the regime,” he added.
The 50th General Assembly of the OAS approved this Wednesday a resolution that calls for “minimum democratic conditions” for the electoral farce that Nicolás Maduro’s regime is orchestrating for December 6th. The session counted with 21 votes in favor, 4 against and 9 abstentions.
The resolution was presented by Colombia and states that the consultation presented by the Venezuelan dictatorship “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 deadlines for their celebration and that they have independent and credible international electoral observation.
