Curbelo Condemns Maduro Regime for Suspended Recall Drive Against Maduro
Washington, D.C.—Yesterday, Venezuela’s electoral authority postponed a recall drive against President Nicolas Maduro. This comes less than a week before members of the opposition were preparing to collect one fifth of voters’ signatures in order to place the recall on their ballot. Rep. Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) released the following statement condemning the Maduro regime:
“The most recent actions by Venezuela’s electoral authority under the Maduro regime are just another example of the systemic and glaring corruption of the Venezuelan government. I continue to stand in absolute solidarity with the people of Venezuela who deserve a true and fair democratic process. True democracy is a right that is guaranteed by the Venezuelan Constitution, and we must continue to support all Venezuelans in their fight to regain freedom. The Organization of American States must act to support the rule of law in Venezuela and to preserve it's own integrity."
