The leader of Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimada, held a videoconference with the opposition leader and his ambassador in Madrid, to convey her support.
The leader of Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimadas, held a videoconference with the opposition leader and self-proclaimed president in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, with the ambassador appointed by him in Spain, Antonio Ecarri, and with Venezuelan deputies in exile, in which he conveyed the support of his party.
“They are an example of courage, commitment and freedom, That is why they have our support and that of the majority of Spanish society, “Arrimadas told them, according to Cs in a statement on Thursday.” We support them, we have supported them and we will support them, “he added.
The president of the orange formation asked them about the political situation in Venezuela and also about the humanitarian situation, which is now “worsened by the pandemic,” and was interested in how the exiles residing in Spain are.
“What happens in Venezuela hurts us Spaniards because you are a brother country and we are united by historical, human, family and economic ties,” he assured.
In addition, Arrimadas explained to Guaidó and his team the latest actions carried out by Ciudadanos in the Spanish and European institutions so that “the voice of common sense, freedom and democratic forces in Venezuela are present.”
Thus, he said that in the European Parliament they have asked the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Policy for explanations, Josep Borrell, for “his support for the regime” of Nicolás Maduro.
The leader of Cs also recalled that she has signed “a letter of censorship of this support for the Maduro regime” that will be signed by different leaders at the European level and that will be addressed to the European institutions “to record the discomfort and rejection that this generates in many parties and in many countries. “
However, in the last hours Borrell clashed with the Caracas regime by indicating that there are no guarantees to send an observer mission to the December elections, and that there are no conditions for the opposition to be present in those elections.
Europe had asked Venezuela to suspend the December elections, but Maduro replied that a round and closed “NO”.
Finally, he affirmed that the liberal formation presented a non-law proposal in the Congress of Deputies to urge the Executive of Pedro Sánchez to withdraw credentials to the ambassador of the Government of Maduro, Mario Isea, and to recognize Antonio Ecarri in that position, and that in the regional parliaments they also promote initiatives in relation to Venezuela.
