Rodríguez Zapatero: “DEC-6 elections must put an end to unfair and incomprehensible sanctions against Venezuela”

The former Spanish president, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, stressed that these elections of the National Assembly (AN) that take place this Sunday must be the end of unfair and incomprehensible sanctions against Venezuela.

In this sense, Rodríguez Zapatero, who is in the country as an international observer, stated that “This is the beginning of the end of these terrible sanctions that Venezuela is facing. I do not agree with the government of Donald Trump and its sanctions against this country”.

Likewise, he pointed out that the decisions of Venezuelans at the polls must be respected “too many times this electoral system is judged without knowing the process.”

Likewise, he assured that this day is the beginning to erase the word: hatred and respect for the Venezuelans who have decided to vote. “It is the third time that I have participated in elections in the country. It is already clear that imposition and violence are not the way, only the vote and dialogue”.

Rodríguez Zapatero calls on the EU to respect the decisions of Venezuelans:

Rodríguez Zapatero called on the European Union (EU) for a serene and calm reflection, which is based on respect, at the same time. In addition, he called on the EU authorities to evaluate their sanctions policies. “Not to acknowledge is to ignore, you have to commit to Venezuela, the best way is to be here,” he stressed.

Finally, he urged extremism, fanaticism, contempt and hatred in the country should be excluded: “I believe that this electoral process is addressable, for those who are participating. But those who have not wanted to participate in these parliamentary elections have no moral attitude to question anyone.
