Venezuelan President

Posted: Monday, April 29, 2019. 4:24 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Belize has joined together with eight other Caribbean nations to say that the Organization of American States (OAS) had acted outside the scope of its powers when it decided to “accept the appointment of Mr Gustavo Tarre as the National Assembly’s designated Permanent Representative for Venezuela pending new elections and the appointment of a democratically elected government,” on April 9.

The Permanent Missions of  Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, St Kitts-Nevis, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago, said that the OAS Permanent Council had acted ultra vires the rules and procedures of the OAS Permanent Council, the OAS Charter, and international law.

The group of nations noted that accepting Tarre in the capacity of Venezuela’s representative to the OAS goes against Article 80 of the OAS Charter, which stipulates that the person in the post must be appointed by a nation’s government.

They further noted that the letter of recommendation for Tarre is signed by Juan Guido who has declared himself interim president of Venezuela, but the letter was signed the day before Guido even declared his interim presidency.

“These inconsistencies call into question the legitimacy of Mr. Gustavo Tarre’s appointment as the designated Permanent Representative of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the OAS,” the group said in the joint letter.

Grenada later joined the group, agreeing with the concerns that they had put forward to the OAS. The social and political crisis in Venezuela continues to be a major issue raised at international gatherings, due to the magnitude of suffering that is being reported in the country as the situation persists.
