Governor Ron DeSantis today issued a bold proclamation recognizing Interim President Juan Guaidó as the only legitimate leader of Venezuela and standing against Maduro’s oppressive regime. The Governor also called on the Florida Legislature to act swiftly during the 2019 legislative session to follow suit in recognizing Juan Guaidó as the Interim President of Venezuela.
Standing alongside Vice President Mike Pence, Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Rick Scott, Congressman Mario Díaz-Balart, Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez and Venezuelan Exiles in Doral, Governor DeSantis declared his support for democracy in Venezuela.
“Today, in my capacity as Governor, I am signing a proclamation that affirms Florida’s deep affection for Venezuela and decries the individual liberty that has been stripped away by a despot,” said Governor DeSantis. “This proclamation makes clear my support for the Interim President of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, who is the only legitimate leader and is the only person, at this time, able to restore peace, stability and democracy to the people of Venezuela. I further call on the Florida Legislature to act swiftly during the 2019 legislative session to echo this sentiment and recognize Juan Guaidó as the Interim President of Venezuela.”
