Rule 130

 Subject:  Venezuela's interim president
 Answer in writing 

The political situation in Venezuela is worsening by the day. A new self-styled leader, citing the constitution, has declared himself as the interim president, while President Maduro maintains his grip on power. On 31 January 2019, Parliament adopted a resolution calling for an end to this increasingly unstable situation and calling on the Member States to recognise Juan Guaidó as the legitimate interim president. President Tajani has declared support for Juan Guaidó as the legitimate leader of Venezuela.

Is the Council of the view that Juan Guaidó has become interim president of Venezuela in a legitimate manner?

What is its official position on the mandate of Juan Guaidó?

Is it ready to recognise Juan Guaidó as the legitimate leader of Venezuela?
