“We must fight for conditions that make the vote a tool of struggle and a conquest of democracy,” thus began President (e) Juan Guaidó, the meeting he held with the Non-Governmental Organization ‘Rebellion de las Regiones’.
“Today more than ever a Popular Consultation is necessary to direct the majority, which by the way, is exercised in the streets as we have seen these last weeks in Yaracuy, Cojedes, Maracaibo, Nueva Esparta, Guárico, among other places. The Popular Consultation is a political route, not a milestone in itself.”
Guaidó explained that tasks to accomplish this Popular Consultation is “quite advanced” and that in the next few days the government will offer information about it.
He also recalled that this weekend he called for the formation of the “Comandos por la Libertad y Elecciones Libres” (Commandoes for Freedom and Free Elections), which have as objectives to initiate a campaign to disseminate the UN Report; to undertake a campaign against the fraud of December 6th; for free elections; and to accompany peaceful protests.
The also President of the National Assembly (NA) ratified that the change that is needed and urgent in Venezuela passes through the celebration of free, fair and verifiable presidential and parliamentary election, and that is why the fight is for minimum electoral conditions that allow these elections to comply with the aforementioned premises.
“The process called by the regime for the 6D is a fraud by all means and that is why we Venezuelans, but also the international community, reject it. It is already defeated. Now, even if the dictatorship defers (the election), it is still a fraud”.
In the meeting, the interim President was accompanied by the first and second Vice President of the Parliament, Juan Pablo Guanipa and Carlos Berrizbeitia, respectively.
The representatives of the NGO ‘Rebelión de las Regione’, presented a document with very specific proposals regarding the Popular Consultation. They also reiterated to Guaidó and the directive board of the NA, their support to the initiative and the work they are doing to advance and definitely achieve change in Venezuela.
