Washington DC – U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23), Donna Shalala (FL-27) and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (FL-26) issued the following joint statement condemning Sunday’s legislative elections in Venezuela:

“The Maduro regime continues to desperately cling to power by moving forward with illegitimate sham elections. The elections and their predetermined outcomes represent yet another horrifying assault on democracy. We stand with the Venezuelan people experiencing a devastating humanitarian crisis and as they fight to have their voices heard.

They must be able to choose their own future through free, fair, transparent, and competitive elections. We also stand in solidarity with a real champion of democracy, Interim-President of Venezuela Juan Guaidó, and the legitimately elected members of the National Assembly who are demanding free, democratic processes.”
