President in Charge Juan Guiado presented a National Salvation Agreement which seeks to arrange a way out of the political, social and economic crisis that afflicts Venezuelans.
The Director of Institutional Relations of the Presidency in Charge, Golfredo Morett clarified that the proposals in the agreement are not for Maduro but for his entourage that disagrees with his management.
He said that they have proposed to the democratic forces of the regime, that together with the international community, sit down with the opposition to gradually achieve the lifting of sanctions.
Also, Morett indicated that they are looking for free and democratic elections, and actions that allow economic recovery.
He warned that anyone who intends to negotiate unilaterally with Maduro’s regime only acts out of selfishness, this is not the position of Guaidó, who has always tried to join forces and never promote dispersal.
Nicolás Maduro has made the country unviable for all Venezuelans, that also includes the vast majority of those around him.
Likewise, the leader said “I invite you to see the stories of those who appear on the reward lists for drug trafficking or terrorism, all are either imprisoned or dead.”
Morett added that “The only human being that appears on both lists at the same time is Maduro, they do not all have to sink with him, there is the possibility of reaching agreements that allow solving this tragedy and achieving an orderly and peaceful transition that benefits all Venezuelans, who are the ones who suffer the consequences of a small group wanting to remain in power at the cost of the blood and life of an entire country,” he said.
That is why President-in-Charge Guaidó has proposed the National Salvation Agreement which is “a process of pressure (if we are not mobilized in the street, the dictatorship will not yield a millimeter), negotiation between the democratic forces, the regime, and the international community, that allows a political solution to the conflict and generates free elections as a result.”
Guarantees for all
Guarantees both for us and for them, freedom of political prisoners, an electoral schedule, electoral conditions, transitional justice and progressive lifting of sanctions according to compliance with the agreement.
However, Morett said that if the conditions are not met we can expect: an increase in sanctions, criminal cases before the international justice and the ICC, blockade of financing for the State, extraditions, more internal pressure, among other measures.
However, to achieve this, Unity must be maintained and strengthened, unifying international allies, pressuring for the entry of vaccines and protesting in every corner of the country.
Morett recalled that “Venezuelans have two main tasks: the first is to maintain unity in the political leadership, a single valid interlocution that is that of the President in Charge Juan Guaidó, any process that is carried out unilaterally threatens the freedom and future of Venezuelans and strengthens the dictatorship; the second is to increase and maintain internal pressure (which is not the same as conflict) to remain mobilized for our rights and against the dictatorship and against a life of suffering to which they want to reduce us.”
Finally, he recalled that the agreement sets out commitments between national and international actors to achieve humanitarian aid, economic recovery, democratic guarantees and free, fair and transparent presidential, parliamentary, regional and municipal elections.
