OFFICIAL STATEMENT 253
Demonstration in Caracas

​The Government of Spain welcomes the peaceful manner in which the demonstration organised by the opposition in Caracas on Wednesday, 1 September took place. The people of Venezuela have once again shown their commitment to peaceful, electoral and constitutional means to resolving political crises.

​Furthermore, Wednesday’s events have once again shown the support of the people for the path of a recall referendum, as provided for in Article 72 of the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, as well as the urgent need for the National Electoral Council to adopt the measures necessary for this to be held this year.
The government considers that Wednesday’s events should give a new impetus to the highly necessary dialogue between the government and the opposition which must lead to a genuine reconciliation within a framework of understanding, respect for institutions and the release of political prisoners.
