The Democratic Forces, grouped in the Unitary Pact, expressed strong support on Monday for the Popular Consultation promoted by the National Assembly and the interim Government and rejected the electoral farce of Nicolás Maduro’ regime.
Aixa López, councilor of the Libertador municipality and National Women’s Secretary for Acción Democrática, insisted on Unity to materialize the change and make the Popular Consultation a successful event.
“This leadership is neither bought nor sold. Here we are taking a step forward. They can take away our symbols, but not the spirit. Here we continue and we will continue, through the Popular Consultation, to reject the fraud of December 6th. We have to be united to achieve change,” she said.
The leader of the AD party reaffirmed that Venezuelans are democrats, but they do not believe in the fraudulent process called by Maduro. “Activated all the Venezuelan people. Show that we are not abstainers, but that we cannot participate in this fraud. We are Democrats. The 12th to fill the (consultation) centers to show that we are the majority. Without unity there is no change. We believe in ourselves.” she remarked.
Lawrence Castro, deputy of the National Assembly and member of Voluntad Popular, said that the consultation is an instrument for Venezuelans to raise their voices. “It is to rise up again and tell the world that we are alive and we are going to continue fighting. On December 6th we will reject Maduro’s farce. On the 12th we all take to the streets to express ourselves, to raise our voices and tell the world that we want democracy.”
Amelia Belisario, deputy of the AN and deputy national secretary general of Primero Justicia, assured that the illegitimate process of December 6th represents one more lie for Venezuelans. “We reject the Dec 6th deception because it is a continuation of the deception they have sustained for 20 years. Venezuela will raise its voice inside and outside our land in the Popular Consultation.”
The National Secretary General of Copei, Robert García, said that the consultation is the route to achieve freedom. “We can look Venezuelans in the face and tell them we are fighting for their freedom. We continue in our fight: we support President Juan Guaidó and the Popular Consultation. Together we can recover the country, reunite again. Here is Copei working for the necessary change.” he asserted.
