he President of the Republic, Juan Guaidó, thanked the Venezuelan Episcopal Conference for its support, which insisted that the country needs free and transparent elections to overcome the widespread crisis it is going through.
“We are grateful for the exhortation of the Venezuelan Episcopal Conference in which it rejects any electoral trap that distances us from real solutions to the crisis in Venezuela,” the president said through his personal Twitter account on Friday.
Guaidó also said that the chaos the country is experiencing will continue if Nicolás Maduro’s regime continues to usurp power.
“The tragedy will be worsened if the arrogance of the dictatorship persists. The National Emergency Government is the only way to solve it,” he ended.
This Friday, the Venezuelan Episcopal Conference demanded that Maduro’s dictatorship allow free and democratic elections, which will allow “the constitution of a new government of change and national inclusion”.
The religious institution described as “immoral” any action of the regime that hinders the social and political solution of the real problems that Venezuelans suffer day by day.
“While dictatorial guidelines are being hardened, the people are suffering,” it said.
“Mientras se van endureciendo lineamientos dictatoriales, el pueblo sufre”, aseveró.
Agradecemos el exhorto de la @CEVmedios en el que rechaza cualquier trampa electoral que nos aleje de soluciones reales a la crisis en Venezuela.
La tragedia se agravará si persiste la soberbia de la dictadura. El Gobierno de Emergencia Nacional es la única vía de solución. https://t.co/6IWbb5wlPL
