The Vice-President of the Spanish Government, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, advocated on Wednesday reconciliation in Venezuela “consistent” with the rule of law; otherwise, there will no democracy, she said.
Sáenz de Santamaría referred to the ongoing political standoff in Venezuela during a talk with reporters at the Spanish Parliament.
The senior officer embraced the Spanish government involvement in Venezuela’s case, after denouncing the systematic violation of human rights, the existence of political prisoners and the “serious socioeconomic deterioration” in Venezuela.
She also backed a paper proposed by the Spanish Socialist Party of Workers (PSOE) urging Venezuelan authorities to “observe an electoral schedule that allows holding transparent elections.”
