Montevideo Calls Venezuela's Guaido 'More Non-Legitimate' Than Maduro's Gov't

The decision by Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido to proclaim himself interim president is not based on the country’s Constitution and is even less legitimate than the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Uruguay’s Foreign Minister Rodolfo Nin Novoa said in an interview with local broadcaster Radio Mundo.

"Speaking about non-legitimacy of the government of Maduro, frankly speaking, the self-proclamation [of Guaido] is the same or even more non-legitimate … I will not comment on Guaido’s arguments in support of his self-proclamation … But they do not correspond with Article 233 of Venezuela’s Constitution, which he refers to", Novoa said.

Given the situation in Venezuela, where there are "two presidents," Uruguay believes that holding a presidential election would be the only solution to the crisis, Novoa added, noting that Uruguay "was not setting forward any conditions".
