The president in charge, Juan Guaidó, highlighted this Thursday during his speech at the Forum on “Transition in Venezuela is possible”, that currently Venezuelans “however complicated it may be” are in “the doorstep that leads to the end of the dictatorship”.
The Venezuelan head of state recalled how the transition to democracy was in Spain on the occasion of former Spanish President Felipe González’s participation in the forum. “In the days of Spain’s transition we know the objectives were not achieved in the first instances, due to the dis-union, to approaching the solution that everyone wanted from different angles”.
In this sense, President (E) Guaidó highlighted the importance of “building a common future, the union, focusing on that greater objective, leaving aside natural interests, always putting our people first.”
“That coalition also had as an objective political freedom, calls for elections, but despite that it was not achieved in the first moment. Perhaps if they had known how weak the regime was, they would have done other things,” he recalled, referring to the process of freedom in Spain.
Similarly, Guaidó said that for 20 years the ground has been prepared to reach where it is today and conquer freedom. “Every struggle we have given, every martyr, every political prisoner, every coalition we have achieved has its weight. I firmly believe that today Venezuela can build a definitive space for a democratic feat that calls on all of us here, and the international community”.
“Years ago it would have been impossible, but today it is possible because of all this struggle we have given, because of all we are working for. Today we are the Venezuelans and our friends, a definitive vanguard for freedom and democracy, and we are going to accomplish that transition,” he said.
In this regard, he said “international accompaniment is fundamental, today has completely rethought the board in Venezuela. The recognition, the strength of the struggle, the not lowering the flags with which we started this process”.
Finally, he highlighted the strategy to be followed to achieve the end of Maduro’s dictatorship and asserted that “this has to do with using all the tools we have to achieve the transition to democracy. At this moment it has to do with everything we can do.”
