Maduro: US Seeks to Reedit 2002 Coup d’état in Venezuela

Caracas, Apr 11 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro noted that the Government of the United States, with its actions, is seeking to reedit the coup d’état perpetrated against Commander Hugo Chavez in 2002.

‘As 17 years ago, the Venezuela people defeated the coup attack on Chavez, we will continue the battle against Washington’s permanent intentions to establish a regime change in the Bolivarian nation. The Constitution and the people rule here,’ the president said on national radio and television on Wednesday.

At the Miraflores Palace (the venue of the Executive), Maduro charged that US authorities do not stop the constant charge against national institutionality, proved by the sabotages on the National Power System (SEN).

In that regard, the head of State noted that destabilizing the population with the lack of electricity and drinking water is the main objective of the right wing to create domestic chaos and justify a military intervention.

He stressed that the government of President Donald Trump insists on imposing puppets in Venezuela; however, he recalled that, according to the Constitution of the Republic, it is the citizens that elect their president, an action developed on May 20, 2018, when Maduro was ratified for the 2019-2025 term by 68 percent of voters.

Maduro said that on Thursday, the revolutionary force will commemorate the popular mobilizations held from April 11 to 13, 2002, as a result of the coup d’état against Chavez, as part of an imperialist effort to overthrowing the emerging Bolivarian Revolution.
