Brazil expresses concerns over Venezuela’s electoral process

Brazil expressed concern about the Venezuelan electoral process following actions by dictator Nicolás Maduro to interfere in the registration of opposition candidates. The Brazilian government questioned the lack of an official explanation for the obstacles faced by opposition candidates in registering for the presidential elections in Venezuela. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that Brazil is closely monitoring the situation and is ready to cooperate with the international community to support democracy in Venezuela.

The opposition in Venezuela reported that a candidate nominated by the Democratic Unitary Platform was prevented from registering for the election by the Chavista government. This action was seen as not in line with the agreements made in Barbados and has not been officially explained. Despite these obstacles, Brazil reaffirmed its commitment to supporting Venezuela in achieving normalcy in its political life and strengthening democracy in the country.

Last year, the Barbados Agreement aimed to pave the way for transparent and democratic elections in Venezuela, with the United States agreeing to lift sanctions if democratic elections were held. However, Maduro’s regime has been accused of preventing opposition candidates from participating in the upcoming election through various maneuvers. The fairness of the election has been questioned, with accusations of accepting registrations from false opposition candidates who collaborate with Maduro. Brazil remains against sanctions on Venezuela, as they believe it will only harm the Venezuelan people.

Despite the announcements of the upcoming presidential elections in Venezuela on July 28th, concerns over the fairness of the election persist due to the actions of the Maduro regime to hinder opposition candidates. The international community, including Brazil, is closely monitoring the situation and offering support to ensure democratic elections in Venezuela.
