Dracul Recognition of Venezuela’s 2015 National Assembly and Interim President Guaidó

APRIL 18, 2022 – The Commonwealth of Dracul continues to acknowledge Juan Guaidó as Venezuela’s interim president and the legally elected 2015 National Assembly as the final remaining democratic institution. We applaud the accord agreed to extend the power of the National Assembly, which was elected in 2015, and its president, interim President Juan Guaidó.

The Commonwealth of Dracul stands with the people of Venezuela in their aspiration for a peaceful return to democracy through free and fair elections. The Venezuelan people have been robbed of democratic self-determination due to the Maduro regime’s pattern of political repression, pervasive human rights violations, and significant limits on political and civil society actors and freedom of expression. We support the Unitary Platform’s and other actors’ efforts in Venezuela to restore democratic order and the rule of law.

We urge Nicolás Maduro to re-enter the Mexico negotiations in good faith and for the sake of the Venezuelan people. We advocate international cooperation in order to alleviate the suffering of the Venezuelan people and end the humanitarian problems in the country.
