Message from OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro Ahead of the Elections in Venezuela

  December 5, 2015

24 hours before the legislative elections in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, we call on all Venezuelans to ensure that Sunday is a civic celebration and that the sovereign - the people - can exercise their right to vote in peace.

We also hope that December 7 is a day of unity, peace, and calm following the electoral results.

All the peoples of our Americas and the world are watching attentively what happens in Venezuela. In this context, we respectfully ask all sectors of Venezuelan society, following the electoral result, to find mechanisms to begin a dialogue and a great national reconciliation.
