Venezuela's opposition wants interim government out
Venezuela's interim government was formed in 2019 in an attempt to depose President Nicolas Maduro.
Two weeks after a major setback in regional elections, one of Venezuela's opposition leaders called for the termination of the country's interim government, which was founded in 2019 in an attempt to depose President Nicolas Maduro.
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 dozens of other countries, forming a parallel administration against the Venezuelan people's choice, Maduro.
The former Foreign Policy Chief said, "We must take steps to reform everything that has been called interim government... the interim government has been deformed."
Two weeks ago, Maduro's party won 20 out of 23 governorates, as well as the mayorship of the capital Caracas.
On Tuesday, Borges is scheduled to pitch his proposals before a panel of members who served in the National Assembly under the opposition's leadership from 2016 to 2020.
The opposition boycotted legislative elections in 2020, as well as the presidential elections in 2018 when Maduro was reelected.
Borges expressed that "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.
