Vote on Venezuela
A non-binding resolution on the situation in Venezuela, wrapping up the 10 May plenary debate with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, will be debated on Tuesday and put to a vote on Wednesday. Venezuela is in a deep economic crisis, and political tension is escalating. Early in May the opposition handed the electoral authorities 1.85 million signatures asking for a recall referendum against President Nicolás Maduro.
Venezuela, which has the largest oil reserves in the world, has three-digit inflation rates and is suffering shortages of basic goods and power.
Procedure: Statement by the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (with resolution)
Vote: Wednesday, 8 June
