“We hope that your nation will support, as the international community has done, our efforts and our proposal to form a National Emergency Government,” reads the letter sent by President (E) Guaidó.
The following is the complete communiqué:
Mr. Andrew Holness
Prime Minister of Jamaica
Receive cordial greetings. On behalf of the Venezuelan people I write to you on the opportunity to congratulate you, for being privileged again by the electoral preference and the confidence of your people in the recent elections.
As you well know, in Venezuela we are carrying out a long fight against the criminal regime of Nicolás Maduro who, in violation of our constitution, usurps the Presidency of the Republic. Therefore, considering Jamaica as a key nation in contributing to the definitive solution of the Complex Humanitarian Crisis we are living we hope that your nation will support, as the International Community has done, our efforts and our proposal for the formation of a National Emergency Government with all the political sectors of Venezuela. While we request you to promote it and encourage it before the international community as the only mechanism that would allow us to prioritize the humanitarian and social problems and then, hold free, fair and transparent presidential elections.
I bid you farewell by expressing my highest esteem and consideration, and I wish you every success in your administration for the benefit of all Jamaicans, and for the sake of integration, freedom and security in the hemisphere.
President of the National Assembly
President (E) of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela
