Belize absent at OAS meeting

Posted: Thursday, April 11, 2019. 10:17 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Belize was not represented this week at a meeting of the Organization of American States (OAS) where an important vote was taken in respect to the ongoing civil crisis in Venezuela.

Members of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) voted to “accept” Gustavo Tarre “as the National Assembly’s designated permanent representative, pending new elections and the appointment of a democratically elected government,” in Venezuela. The vote is especially important because Tarre is endorsed by Juan Guaido, the man who has declared himself the interim President of Venezuela.

CARICOM member states were divided on the vote with countries like St Lucia, Jamaica, Haiti and the Bahamas voting in favor of Tarre while Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname voted against him.  Barbados, Guyana, St Kitts- Nevis, and Trinidad and Tobago abstained from voting.

This is not the first time Belize has been absent from a vote concerning Venezuela. On January 10, 2019, the OAS took a vote to not recognize the legitimacy of Nicholas Maduro after the January 9 elections. Again, Belize was absent from the vote.

Last month CARICOM ministers held a video conference with Juan Guaido to discuss a peaceful resolution to the ongoing crisis in Venezuela.
