The Ambassador to the Kingdom of Belgium, Mary Ponte, on Wednesday held a preparatory meeting for the Popular Consultation with the presidential coordinator for this activity in Europe, Ramón López.
López and Ponte designed the application to be used this day for Europe where, as is well known, there are a large number of Venezuelans who have opted for migration to escape the horrors of the narco-terrorist regime of Nicolás Maduro, which keeps the country mired in poverty, deteriorated and backward, and one must add the most atrocious violation of human rights.
“More than five million Venezuelans have fled the dictatorship. In 20 years they have generated one of the worst political-economic-social crisis that has affected our people, and our people, are desperately looking for a better destination to recover a minimum standard of living. We are sure that Venezuelans abroad will join us in this consultation, to reject the electoral fraud of December 6th and request free, transparent and credible elections, as demanded by the majority of our nationals and the international community.” said Ambassador Ponte.
For his part, López stressed that: “all of Europe, but especially Spain, will play a crucial role in this Consultation, as this has been the favorite destination for Venezuelans to migrate in Europe. We are considering everything pertinent so that Venezuelans in Belgium, Portugal, Andorra, Italy, France and in all corners of the old continent have the opportunity to participate, so that they can raise their voices”.
The design of the strategy of the Popular Consultation abroad will start on December 5th until 12th, digitally, being in person only on the 12th. For this day all the respective biosecurity measures are being considered due to the progress of the second wave of Covid-19 in the whole world.
