The United States continues to stand behind Guaidó, Venezuela’s true interim president, and all those who valiantly fight to keep Venezuela’s democracy alive amid this horrific suffering and violent oppression.

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement in response to Venezuelan opposition figure Juan Guaidó being denied entry to the National Assembly to be re-elected as its head earlier today:

“Nicolas Maduro continued his tyrannical rule today by holding sham elections in the National Assembly, Venezuela’s last remaining democratic institution. Courageous members of the opposition, including interim President Juan Guaidó, were violently blocked from entering that building by Maduro’s thugs. Thankfully, Guaidó and the brave opposition remain steadfast in their commitment to holding free and fair elections in the Assembly, and nationwide. The United States continues to stand behind Guaidó, Venezuela’s true interim president, and all those who valiantly fight to keep Venezuela’s democracy alive amid this horrific suffering and violent oppression."
