At least five ex Latin American presidents are heading for Venezuela in reply to an invitation from the National Assembly (AN) in connection with a plebiscite convened by the opposition coalition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD).
The former presidents do not rule out the possibility of meeting with senior authorities, including Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, the Democratic Initiative for Spain and the Americas (IDEA) reported on Thursday.
In a statement, Asdrúbal Aguiar, IDEA director general, specified that the mission will be composed of Laura Chinchilla, from Costa Rica; Vicente Fox, from Mexico; Andrés Pastrana, from Colombia; Jorge Quiroga, from Bolivia, and Miguel Ángel Rodríguez, from Costa Rica.
IDEA received an invitation from Congress Speaker Julio Borges to attend the event scheduled for Sunday, July 16, in order to disavow a constitutional reform attempted by the Venezuelan government.
This is the second IDEA mission to Venezuela. Earlier, in December 2015, took part in the parliamentary elections, where the opposition took over the National Assembly.
