The First Lady of the Republic, Fabiana Rosales de Guaidó, along with deputies of the National Assembly and representatives of civil society expressed their support for the Popular Consultation during the meeting “Woman Raises her Voice”.
At the event, the representatives promoted the Popular Consultation and called on the population to reject the electoral fraud called by Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship for December 6th.
The First Lady stressed that the Popular Consultation is not only a popular expression mechanism supported by most sectors and unions in the country but also by the international community.
“The Popular Consultation is a fight that we must vindicate over and over again. It is about people listening to us, as happened with the UN Report, because years went by before the world recognized what our country is experiencing today.” she added.
Likewise, Rosales de Guaidó reiterated that Maduro’s regime is indolent to the need in which the citizens find themselves, since their only drive is to stay in power at all costs.
“Venezuelan women live under menstrual poverty, because they do not have enough access to personal hygiene products, nor are they received with dignity in hospitals, all this because of the Complex Humanitarian Emergency,” she added.
Meanwhile, Deputy Nora Bracho, said that although Maduro’s regime intends to demotivate the population, it must continue to fight for the future.
“Today the regime tries to demotivate us, but it will not succeed. Here we are, Venezuelan women, strong, ready to continue fighting for our country.” she stated.
Finally, the parliamentarian from Zulia State stressed that “all women in the country have the right to live with dignity, to be able to go to a supermarket and buy whatever they want, with a salary that is enough for them.”
Likewise, the Director of Culture of the National Assembly, Evelyn Pinto pointed out that the Popular Consultation is binding because it is supported by Article 70 of the Constitution, emphasizing that the board of directors of the National Electoral Council of Maduro does not have legitimacy “it is a de facto CNE, it has no illegitimacy of origin, because it was not elected by the parliament ”.
Meanwhile, the representative of Civil Society in the Frente Amplio de Mujeres, Carmen Grijalva, expressed her rejection of the fraudulent process organized by the dictatorship, “the freedom to choose is violated and usurped. The Popular Consultation means setting the path for free and verifiable elections.”
While the lawyer Adriana Aguilera urged Venezuelans to spread the message against fraud: “we must spread the word, neighbor to neighbor, do not get confused, December 6th is not an election, it is a rigged process that the dictatorship put together to suit themselves.”
