EU parliament recognizes Guaido as Venezuelan interim president

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BRUSSELS – The European Parliament recognized Venezuela’s self-declared interim president Juan Guaido as de facto head of state on Thursday.

EU lawmakers voted 439 in favor to 104 against, with 88 abstentions, at a special session in Brussels to recognize Venezuelan congress head Guaido as interim leader.

As Venezuela has sunk into economic and political crisis that has brought mass emigration and hyperinflation, the EU imposed an arms embargo and sanctions on officials to decry what it views as rights violations and the rupture of democracy.
