The message from the Venezuelan opposition, Henrique Capriles, to take part in the parliamentary elections in December, met the President of the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, who this Thursday insisted that there is no “fraud” of the elections “alternative” to the current “status quo” .
Guaidó did not specifically mention Capriles, but he made it clear that his position remains the same. “At this point, the 6-D is already being delegitimized by the international community,” he said during a meeting with members of the Concertación party, according to a statement released by his team.
“Neither the bedside table nor the scorpions worked for the dictatorship. We cannot lose focus. Our political proposal is to save lives and the republic be reborn,” added the recognized head of the National Assembly as the legitimate president of Venezuela for more than fifty countries.
For Capriles, however, Guaidó plays “online as president”, alluding to the lack of practical progress since he was named “responsible president” in January 2019. The former governor of Miranda has become headstrong in the face of a Guaidó who has instead asked all opposition movements to “row together”.
