The deathly silence by which the Authorities immersed itself within the face of the controversial legislative elections in Venezuela final Sunday, had one other sturdy symptom on Tuesday that accompanies the refusal of Kirchnerism to sentence Nicolás Maduro.
Solely 4 months after becoming a member of the decision Worldwide Contact Group (GCI) Relating to Venezuela, the Alberto Fernández administration refused to signal an announcement issued this Tuesday that ignores Sunday’s elections, thought-about fraudulent by the Venezuelan opposition and unknown by 16 Latin American nations.
Whereas the Casa Rosada and International Ministry officers proceed with out making statements concerning the elections, the rumor continues that Argentina is looking for to agree on a typical place with Luis Arce, from Bolivia, and Andrés Manuel López Obrador, from Mexico. For now, the place is silence.
This Tuesday’s assertion from the Worldwide Contact Group that Argentina refused to signal reads as follows:

They concluded that the circumstances for a reputable, inclusive and clear course of for the election of a brand new Nationwide Meeting didn’t at the moment exist and referred to as for all obstacles to political participation to be eliminated to ensure that a course of to happen. vital electoral.
They don’t contemplate that the elections to the Venezuelan Nationwide Meeting held on December 6 have fulfilled the internationally accepted circumstances, as requested by the ICG and different worldwide teams. Nor did they adjust to the circumstances required by Venezuelan regulation.
