“It was a flagrant violation of the agreement signed by the National Electoral Council (CNE) which strictly subscribes that the sovereignty of Venezuelans must be respected. If he (Borrell) has political roles there within the EU, that is his problem “Rodríguez said during his participation in the electoral rehearsal for the regional and local elections in November.
Borrell defended on Friday, during an informative breakfast organized by Nueva Economía Forum, in Madrid, that the mission “will accompany” the opposition, because “it is a greater guarantee for them” that the EU observers are “present auditing the system.” .
“If the opposition decides to go and that is a path that allows to open a gap and achieve a greater institutionalization of the opposition, am I going to say that I am not sending an electoral observation mission because the elections are fraudulent?”, argued the vice president of the European Commission.
“Well, what a encouragement I give them to come forward if I already say they are fraudulent”Borrell added about an opposition that, for the most part, will participate in the elections for the first time since 2017.
