Venezuela’s Far-Right Opposition Plans Post-Electoral Violence

Orinoco Tribune, May 31, 2024 — 

The first vice president of the United Socialist Party (PSUV), Diosdado Cabello, has confirmed and condemned a new destabilizing plan of post-electoral violence led by the far-right Venezuelan opposition and the White House, scheduled to gave been in operation from July 28 to July 31.

The political leader warned during his television program Con el Mazo Dando this Wednesday, May 29, that the far-right opposition and their backing in US imperialism intend to lead the Latin American nation into a civil war.

The head of the ruling party bench in the Venezuelan National Assembly used a pamphlet circulating in Caracas and Miami as an example of proof of this revelation, through which far-right groups drafted a method to generate violence.

According to the subversive proposal, once the National Electoral Council (CNE) announces the results of the presidential elections on July 28, their misdeeds will begin by disregarding the electoral result, among which is the seizure of the Miraflores Palace, seat of the government.

The next step in the plan was for “everyone to stay at the voting centers on July 28.” The document reads that the day after the elections, they ask, “regardless of the results announced by the CNE, to march towards and take Miraflores.”

For July 30, they planned an “open trial against senior leaders of the government,” and placed the 31st as the day of the “Renaissance of Venezuela.”

Cabello warned that their purposes are to clash with the intention of the revolutionary and Chavista forces to maintain and defend peace in the streets and the voting centers.

The Venezuelan leader said that the right has destabilizing intentions, but that “we are not going to stay calm and wait” for them to destabilize the country again, said Cabello.

“During the last 25 years, the Bolivarians learned to resist,” added the PSUV deputy, “we did not sit back and see what happened; we have fought, resisted, and won.”

“We also make mistakes, but we learn from them,” Cabello stated, “and we know the opposition, and we know that they never believe in the electoral path because their record is always that of violence.”
