Brazil expresses concerns over Venezuela’s electoral process

Venezuela’s electoral process has come under scrutiny from Brazil following actions by dictator Nicolás Maduro to interfere in the registration of opposition candidates. The Brazilian government expressed concern over the lack of an official explanation for the obstacles faced by opposition candidates in registering for the presidential elections in Venezuela.

In response, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that Brazil is closely monitoring the situation and is ready to cooperate with the international community to support democracy in Venezuela. Despite these concerns, Brazil reaffirmed its commitment to supporting Venezuela in achieving normalcy in its political life and strengthening democracy in the country.

Last year, the Barbados Agreement aimed to pave the way for transparent and democratic elections in Venezuela, with the United States agreeing to lift sanctions if democratic elections were held. However, Maduro’s regime has been accused of preventing opposition candidates from participating in the upcoming election through various maneuvers. The fairness of the election has been questioned, with accusations of accepting registrations from false opposition candidates who collaborate with Maduro.

Brazil remains against sanctions on Venezuela, as they believe it will only harm the Venezuelan people. Despite the announcements of the upcoming presidential elections on July 28th, concerns over the fairness of the election persist due to the actions of the Maduro regime to hinder opposition candidates. The international community, including Brazil, is closely monitoring
