Venezuelan opposition parties support ousting Guaido
Guaido could be ousted within the next two weeks, according to the Financial Times.
The Venezuelan opposition's political parties are discussing plans to oust the incumbent opposition leader Juan Guaido, according to The Financial Times.
Venezuelan opposition party allies have decided on proceeding without Guaido, a US-installed "interim president" placed in position by a coup. The decision was revealed by a senior member of one of the opposition parties.
The parties which backed the decision are Primero Justicia, Accion Democratica, and Un Nuevo Tiempo.
According to the report, Guaido could be removed as an opposition leader within the next 2 weeks. Most opposition parties believe that Guaido and his administration are at odds with reality in Venezuela.
Last December, one of Venezuela's opposition leaders called for the termination of the country's interim government. Julio Borges, who is exiled to Colombia, said, "The interim government should disappear completely."
Borges resigned as former Foreign Policy Chief under Juan Guaido, who declared himself acting President in January 2019 with the support of the West, forming a parallel administration against the Venezuelan people's choice, Nicolas Maduro.
The opposition boycotted legislative elections in 2020, as well as the presidential elections in 2018 when Maduro was reelected.
Borges said, "we have lost legitimacy, international support because there have been too many contradictions, there have been too many mistakes, there have been too many scandals and that has made the world put the Venezuelan case on ice."
He condemned the opposition's handling, notably the management of assets overseas, and asked them to take efforts to reestablish credibility both inside and outside of Venezuela.
"The subject of assets (outside Venezuela) is a real scandal," Borges noted.
