The diplomatic office said the Venezuelan people want to have the opportunity to choose their next national leader in a “fair, free and competitive election.”
The Embassy of the United States for Venezuela expressed this Thursday, October 26, its congratulations to the National Primary Commission (CNP) for organizing the elections on October 22 and the proclamation of María Corina Machado as the candidate of the opposition for the elections of presidency in 2024.
“We hope to support the Venezuelans in the processes they continue in their work for the future of Venezuela,” the diplomatic body emphasized in a message published on the X (former Twitter) account.
They emphasized that Venezuelans express their opinion with a view to “truly free, fair and competitive” presidential elections, in which Venezuela exercises its right to express itself for a prosperous future. We celebrate with the democratic actors of Venezuela who have overcome the challenges and all who made this election possible.
“There is no doubt that the Venezuelan people want to have the opportunity to choose their next president through a fair, free and competitive election,” they wrote in X.
This statement came after Attorney General Tarek William Saab announced the investigation and summoned the president and vice president of the CNP, Jesús María Casal and Mildred Camero, respectively, for alleged crimes committed during the process.
