Venezuela’s Embassy in Spain rejected the interventionist aspect of a statement released this Friday by the government of Mariano Rajoy, in which called for a referendum against President Nicolas Maduro. In this regard, the Venezuelan embassy in Spain denounced on its website that the recall referendum issue is being manipulated. The diplomatic mission rejected ‘the pressure exerted by the Government of Spain, which seeks to disregard our Constitution and current legislation regarding the procedures and deadlines to activate the referendum mechanism.’ The Venezuelan diplomatic mission also rejected the biased way in which Spanish media ‘focused their attention on the opposition rally, while did not mention the demonstration carried out by the Bolivarian people in support of the government of President Maduro’. The Venezuelan Embassy requested a balanced and impartial coverage of the events in Venezuela, and to take into account also the people’s support to the democratic and constitutional government of Maduro.
