If you’re wondering what clause 233 of the Venezuelan Constitution says about appointing an “interim president”, it’s the clause on which Guaido has pinned his legitimacy, Dimitri Lascaris clearly explains. It contains nothing relevant to this case.
Yves Engler, Dimitri Lascaris, and Greg Wilpert also discuss The Lima Group meeting in Ottawa and the signing of the Ottawa Declaration to oust President Maduro from power in Venezuela. During the meeting the 13 conservative Latin American governments, plus Canada, officially recognized Juan Guaido as the transitional President of Venezuela, accepted Venezuela’s membership to the Lima Group and pledged $53M to help Venezuelan refugees.
