The Venezuelan interim government is organizing a popular consultation to repudiate the socialist regime of dictator Nicolas Maduro, in a process that will be held around the December 6thcongressional election that the opposition is boycotting.

According to an El Pais Tuesday report, the Venezuelan opposition says that the parliamentary vote is rigged in favor of the ruling Partido Socialista Unido, and most opposition parties have ruled out fielding candidates. Numerous nations around the world also rejected the parliamentary elections pointing out the Maduro regime doesn’t provide the necessary conditions.

“This is, I want to emphasize, the last resource we have in the constitution. We have been fighting for 20 years, making use of all the resources that the constitution establishes, which have been systematically snatched (from us),” former supreme court magistrate Blanca Marmol, who is helping organize the effort, told local reporters during a press conference in Caracas alongside other citizen activists.

The idea of a popular consultation was first proposed in August by opposition leader and interim president Juan Guaido, who is recognized by dozens of governments around the world as the country’s legitimate leader following Maduro’s disputed 2018 re-election.
