December 6, 2020 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada
The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today issued the following statement:
“Canada does not recognize the results of Venezuela’s December 6 electoral process because the process did not meet the minimum conditions for a free and fair exercise of democracy.
“Free and fair elections can only occur when democratic rights are fully respected.
“We continue to call for a peaceful democratic transition and for free and fair presidential elections.
“Canada will always stand with the people of Venezuela in their fight to restore democracy.”
