UPLA Resolution on a new attack on democracy in Venezuela
The board of the Union of Latin American Parties (UPLA), considering the recent resolution of the Venezuelan Supreme Court of Justice that intends to invalidate the parliamentary presidency of President in Charge Juan Guaidó, states the following:
1.- We condemn this new attack on Venezuelan democracy orchestrated by the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro and seconded by a Supreme Court loyal to the regime, which seeks to overrule and criminalize the legitimate authorities of the Venezuelan National Assembly and prevent the exercise of the functions that are its own.
2.- We reiterate the widest and most complete support for the President in Charge of Venezuela Juan Guaidó, true and sole depositary of the citizen will of the Venezuelan people, and we express our concern for his integrity, that of his family, that of his government team and the of all deputies opposed to Maduro, facing the possible consequences that this measure may bring.
3.- We urgently call on the democratic countries and on international organizations not to let these very serious events pass and to express themselves clearly against what is happening in Venezuela, along with taking drastic measures against the tyrannical regime that oppresses That country.
4.- Finally, we renew the commitment of this organization with the Venezuelan people and with their right to live in a free and democratic country, where justice and the rule of law prevail.
