Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolás Maduro said again that the enforcement of the judgment is up to the Supreme Tribunal of Justice
The disqualification enjoined on ex Chacao major Leopoldo López by the Venezuelan Comptroller General violated his rights to elect and be elected. Such was the decision made by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR Court), which ordered Venezuelan government authorities, particularly the National Electoral Council (CNE) to enable him to take part in upcoming election.
The content of the ruling, approved two weeks ago in Bogotá, the capital city of Colombia, was just released. The regional court informed the Venezuelan government, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the attorneys of the leader of opposition Voluntad Popular party about its decision.
As soon as López learned about the resolution, he posted on his Twitter account: "Justice has been administered upon the decision of the IACHR Court. We will keep on working on a better Venezuela!"
Minister of Foreign Affairs Nicolás Maduro also replied and was adamant to say that the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) has the last word.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
