Trinidad: Trinidad opposition endorses Guaido as Venezuelan leader

The Op­po­si­tion Unit­ed Nation­al Congress has en­dorsed Venezue­lan Na­tion­al As­sem­bly head Juan Guai­do as in­ter­im Pres­i­dent and called for fresh elec­tions in Venezuela su­per­vised by in­ter­na­tion­al ob­servers.

“We’re prepar­ing to join with the Venezue­lan peo­ple and the free world in recog­nis­ing Juan Guai­do,” Op­po­si­tion Leader Kam­la Per­sad-Bisses­sar said in Par­lia­ment yes­ter­day.

She spoke about the cri­sis in Venezuela as she pi­lot­ed a mo­tion against Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kei­th Row­ley’s re­cent Mind Your Busi­ness ad­dress to the na­tion. Her state­ments al­so fol­lowed Row­ley’s com­ments ear­li­er in the sit­ting when he re­buffed US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s call for hemi­spher­ic gov­ern­ments to re­ject the em­bat­tled Nico­las Maduro pres­i­den­cy.

Row­ley said, in re­sponse to the US call which he said was “made through its pres­i­dent who speaks for the US and not for Trinidad and To­ba­go” that this coun­try’s re­sponse had been to par­tic­i­pate in Thurs­day’s Cari­com meet­ing on Venezuela. He said the meet­ing re­sult­ed in T&T reaf­firm­ing its non-in­ter­ven­tion, non-in­ter­fer­ence po­si­tion on neigh­bour­ing states and ac­knowl­edg­ing the sov­er­eign­ty of a na­tion.
