In a message, JVP condemned the reactionary move to recognize a person not elected by the people as the president of Venezuela to replace duly elected President Nicolas Maduro.
Condemn reactionary coup to implant a renegade as president of Venezuela
It is with revolutionary solidarity we, the JVP, stand with Venezuelan people at this time of their fight against the coup of the right-wing reactionaries of Venezuela that has been carried out with the unholy support of imperialism lead by the US reactionaries. The progressive people in the world, who are fully aware of the fiendish attempts of imperialism led by the US to dominate the world by grabbing resources belonging to the people, fully back Comrade Nicolas Maduro, the legally elected President of Venezuela and is recognized by all peace loving people in the world.
It should also be mentioned that Former US President Jimmy Carter had stated: “of the 92 elections that they had monitored, the election process in Venezuela was the best in the world”. Venezuela’s voting technology is said to contain several security mechanisms for audits and verification of results, which have been accredited by national and international observers including the Carter Center.
In such an atmosphere Juan Guaido, who had studied at George Washington University in the United States and who didn’t even contest election held on 20 May 2018, has arbitrarily declared himself President which has been rejected by Supreme Tribunal of Justice in Venezuela. However, US imperialists together with several countries that back any provocative act carried out by US imperialists on the pretext of peace, human rights and democracy, are backing the self-proclaimed president and the unholy move.
The progressive people in the world, recognizing President Nicolas Maduro as the constitutionally and democratically elected president of Venezuela, encourage the progressive masses in Venezuela to rally with Maduro and his government to defeat the arbitrary and authoritarian act of renegade Guaido, which corresponds with the unholy agenda of US imperialists and its lackeys.
The JVP, as the principal political party of the progressive and left-oriented people in Sri Lanka totally back the progressive people’s struggle against US imperialism and expresses its solidarity with the heroic resistance of the Venezuelan people to protect the Bolivarian Revolution led by late Hugo Chávez.
Long live Bolivarian Revolution!
Long live Proletarian Internationalism!
With Revolutionary greetings,
Department of Foreign Relations of the Political Bureau of the JVP
