OAS weighs two draft resolutions on Venezuela

If 33 nations take part as expected, 22 votes will be necessary to pass any instrument

The Organization of American States (OAS) prepares two draft resolutions on the Venezuelan case to be discussed by the foreign ministers of Member States on Wednesday.

As posted on the website of the organization, one draft has been produced by Peru, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Panama, and another by Antigua and Barbuda.

Among others, the draft of the former group urges the OAS to request the government of President Nicolas Maduro to reverse the call for the constituent assembly “as it is currently conceived,” and suspend the legal proceedings against civilians in military courts.

As quoted by Efe, the draft of the latter group agrees on “the cancelation of the call for the constituent assembly in the proposed terms.” Additionally, it makes an appeal for “the immediate return to normal of political relations, including respect and enforcement of the Rule of Law, release of political prisoners and the adoption of a schedule for elections.”

If 33 nations take part as expected, 22 votes will be necessary to pass any instrument.

Last May 1, Maduro called for a national constituent assembly in reply to the ongoing anti-government protests that started on April 1 nationwide.
