the opposition leader Venezuelan Juan Guaido accused this Wednesday the Government of his country, which he calls a “dictatorship” of being “afraid of the will of the people” due to the conditions imposed by the National Electoral Council (CNE) to gather support to activate a referendum to revoke Nicholas Maduro of the office of president.

“For fear of the will of the people today, once again, the dictatorship committed a fraud. They are a minority and they snatched the plebiscitary event without keeping any form. We are going to insist on conditions for free and fair elections, where the will of Venezuelans is respected,” Guaidó wrote on Twitter.

This Wednesday, for twelve hours, a day was held to collect the necessary signatures (corresponding to 20% of the electorate in each state) to activate the referendum to revoke Maduro from the position of president, as announced last Friday by the CNE.
The collection of signatures, for which the CNE set 12 hours, began at 6:00 local time (10:00 GTM) and ended at 6:00 p.m. (22:00 GTM) this Wednesday.
Due to these conditions that the promoters have described as “buffoonery”, the organizers have chosen not to call Venezuelans to the signature collection day, despite which, some citizens have attended.
