OAS comments of Venezuela's opposition request
- Looks like the opposition who also went to the OAS this week saying
Venezuela�s government was in violation of its own consititution and the
OAS freedom charter lost out again hands down.
The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Jos�
Miguel Insulza, said in press statements that the hemispheric body �fully
respects, how could it be otherwise, the decision of the Venezuela�s
constitutional powers over the inauguration of the President of that
country. � �The issue has been resolved by the three branches of government
of Venezuela: it raised the Executive, the Legislature considered, and
solved the Judiciary. Game, set and match�
Even though some of the depraved opposition say they will head to the
streets and called a strike, they have little support and may like what
happens if they try.
Also representatives of over twenty Latin American and Caribbean countries
became signatories to the �Caracas Declaration� and promised to reject any
attempts to �destabilize and promote intervention into matters on which
the Venezuelan people have clearly expressed their will.� and called on the
international community to respect the TSJ decision that President Chavez
can be sworn in at a later date.
"We express our absolute confidence" in the government and institutions of
Venezuela "and fully accompany" the arrangements for "the democratic will
of the Venezuelan people is jealously respected,"
