The President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, is ready to submit his office to a referendum in 2022, so Venezuelans can decide on his mandate.
“In the year 2022, on January 10, the period opens for those who want to collect the signatures to call a recall referendum against President Maduro, have the freedom to take to the streets and ask for the signatures from the people, and if the people collect enough signatures as required by the Constitution for a recall referendum, we will go to a recall referendum to measure ourselves at the ballot box, “the Venezuelan president said on Wednesday in an act to commemorate the 199th anniversary of the Battle of Carabobo and the Day of the Bolivarian Army.
Maduro said the citizenship will decide the fate of his mandate, not “a handful of coup leaders” or the US government. “In Venezuela who decides, who puts and who takes away is the sovereign people through the vote, there is no Donald Trump, there is no Joe Biden,” he said, referring to the US President and the Democratic candidate for the US Presidency, respectively. .
In this way, he again denounced the interventionist attitude of the United States. with respect to Venezuela and the plots devised by the Venezuelan opposition, in collaboration with Washington, to generate a coup d’état in the country with the aim of ending the Maduro Presidency.
The Venezuelan head of state stressed in his country there is “democracy, plurality and legally constituted democratic institutions.”
In this same sense, he stressed that the Bolivarian country plans to hold the elections to the National Assembly (AN) in 2020 and, in 2021, the elections for the renewal of the governors and mayors.
In May 2018, Maduro was re-elected President of Venezuela to continue leading the South American country until 2025.
Ignoring the popular vote that guaranteed the legitimacy of Maduro’s mandate, the opposition, led by Juan Guaidó, and the US, the main sponsor of the coup agenda in Venezuela, refused to recognize the Chavista president and so far have continued with their conspiracies against the president to overthrow him.
This, despite the fact that many international observers from different countries of the world who traveled to Venezuela to monitor the transparency of the electoral process, confirmed its legitimacy.
