He’s already in Caracas again. Jos Luis Rodríguez Zapatero has returned to Venezuela amid the controversial imposition of a new National Electoral Council (CNE), the last guide from Nicols Maduro to the United States and the European Union (EU) in search of the withdrawal of sanctions.
The former president of the Spanish Government participates today in the Congress of the Cambiemos party, one of Nicols Maduro’s allies in the parliament that emerged from the fraudulent elections of 2020. His main leader, Timoteo Zambrano, is the leader closest to Zapatero in Caracas.
“Let’s change is the dialogue peace party, the party that does not know what contempt and hatred is. The party that wants to reconnect with each citizen of Venezuela, “recited the Spanish leader before those attending the conclave, who swore in the new party leadership.
Zapatero returns to Caracas once again at the most suitable moment for Nicols Maduro. The new CNE presented with the Government, under the formula 3 + 2 (three revolutionary militants and two opponents from the ranks of the former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles), is seen from Brussels as a “first step”, while in Washington the new administration of Joe Biden says he will continue to push for “fundamental changes.”
The former leader of the PSOE usually goes to Maduro’s calls in Caracas in the most difficult moments, either to support the fraud elections last year or to give his approval to the negotiations with the false opposition, the so-called Table of Dialogue. . Zapatero is the main ally of the revolutionary cause in Europe and he also defends the Chavista thesis within the Puebla Group, which brings together leftists, populists, and revolutionaries from the continent.
As if it wanted to make it clear to its followers that nothing has changed, Chavismo kept the president of the new CNE, Pedro Calzadilla, at the head of a television program with the usual praise for the figure of Hugo Chvez. The law prevents the five rectors of the judicial body from serving in partisan organizations.
Precisely, the so-called prt-porter opposition, of which Zambrano is a part, was ignored by Chavismo in the formation of the new CNE due to its political insignificance (20 deputies compared to 257 Chavistas). Zambrano, who for two years jumped from party to party, did not attend the 2015 Parliament sessions because he claimed he was retired and the law supported him. Mlocal media denounced in December that he had not been elected at the polls, but that in a final compromise he was awarded a seat after pressure exerted from power.
The new CNE has attracted the limited support of Josep Borrell, number two in the EU, and the Spanish Government (as something “drinkable” and as a “first step”. The US, for the moment, has left a string of doubts in its reactions, a kind of abstention while waiting for new movements.
Those who have been firm and exhaustive so far are Juan Guaid and the legitimate National Assembly of 2015, who have received the support of the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (OAS). “We recognize the decision taken by the interim government on the illegitimacy of the CNE appointed by the illegitimate National Assembly. Venezuela does not want that CNE,” said Luis Almagro.
“The independence of the judiciary, the media and electoral observation are other issues to be resolved before free and fair elections can be held,” the Government of Canada reacted.
