11 countries of the Organization of American States are trying to expel Venezuela’s representative in the body appointed by Guaidó | the world

The existence of a person appointed by Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s representative to the Organization of American States (OAS) is being questioned by the 11 countries that make up the body.

Secretary-General Luis Almagro spoke about the pronouncement on Wednesday (5). A meeting of OAS member states is held in Lima, Peru.

Nicolás Maduro was re-elected in 2018. However, the opposition did not recognize the vote as legitimate. In January 2019, when Maduro was sworn in for a second term, National Assembly President Juan Guaido declared himself president, as he would be next in line.

Several countries and organizations (including the OAS) have recognized Guaidó as Venezuela’s president.

Venezuela’s chair was accepted by Quito’s ambassador, Gustavo Torre.

Self-proclaimed President Juan Guaido has called on Venezuelans to take to the streets.

Countries that want Guaidó’s representative out

The countries that will be questioning in the presence of a representative appointed by Guaidó are:

  • Mexico
  • Bolivia
  • Bahamas
  • Barbados
  • Belize
  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • Dominica
  • Granada
  • Saint Lucia
  • Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
  • Trinidad and Tobago

The representatives of these countries want to cancel the acceptance of the permanent representative to the OAS “appointed by the National Assembly of Venezuela in January 2019” (Quaito is the president of the National Assembly).

In order for the removal proposal to be voted on, 23 of the 34 active OAS members must support the ballot request.

The text also asks to consider that Venezuela “ceased membership in the Organization of American States on April 27, 2019.” On that day, the deadline for formalizing Venezuela’s withdrawal from the OAS was announced by the government of Nicolás Maduro two years ago.

Almagro denied that the process of withdrawing Venezuela from the OAS had been completed. He argues that Venezuela could not have left the organization because the country was indebted to the OAS. “They don’t necessarily have to spend two years leaving the organization, but they have to keep all their obligations up to date,” he said.
