It has not come forward due to the refusal of Podemos, a preferred partner of the Socialists, to support it
The Popular Parliamentary Group has tried to approve today, together with Citizens, an institutional declaration of the Congress supporting the legitimate National Assembly of Venezuela, in the light of human rights violations by the regime of Nicolás Maduro denounced by the United Nations, and to respond to the commitment acquired by the GPP spokeswoman, Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo, with Ambassador Antonio Ecarri, at their meeting on August 16.
However, the text has not come forward due to the refusal of Podemos to support it. The GPP regrets that the preferential partner of the Socialists puts themselves, once again, on the side of those who are committing “serious violations of economic, social, civil, political and cultural rights” in Venezuela, as confirmed by the United Nations in the report in charge by the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet.
Given the “strategy aimed at neutralizing, repressing and criminalizing the political opposition and those who criticize the Government,” and as a sign of its solidarity with the National Assembly, the GPP will insist on its denunciations of the regime and send a representation to the First World Parliamentary Meeting. for the Democracy in Venezuela to which he has been invited. It will take place on September 26 in Caracas, organized by the president in charge of the country, Juan Guaidó.
