Maduro proposes ‘elections’…for his opponents

Now that “dialogue” is going on between Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro and democratically declared acting president Juan Guaidó, Maduro has an opening offer.

BBC reports:

Venezuela’s President Nicolás Maduro has proposed bringing forward next year’s election for the opposition-controlled National Assembly.

National Assembly President Juan Guaidó dismissed the proposal as “a farce”.

The two men have been at loggerheads since January when Mr Guaidó declared himself interim president, arguing Mr Maduro’s re-election was fraudulent.

Talks between the two sides via international mediators are under way in the Norwegian capital, Oslo.

Elections for thee, but not for me.  “Elections,” as they are called in Venezuela, are just for the people who oppose the regime.

Bear in mind that Venezuela has seen humongous, million-plus-strong protests over elections and a call for some new ones.  Nobody’s protesting to get new elections from the National Assembly, which is the last redoubt of opposition control.  The guy they want on the ballot, in free and fair elections, is Maduro himself, who was “re-elected” last year in elections so fraudulent that only the world’s pariah states recognized them.
