Attempt to declare Maduro “personae non gratae” failed
The councilors of PAIS and its allied movements in the city of Quito blocked yesterday an initiative to declare the Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro “persona non grata,” who has been invited to the presidential inauguration of Lenin Moreno.
The proposal submitted by Deputy Mayor Eduardo Del Pozo, and Councilor Daniela Chacón was rejected by eleven councilors, including representatives of the ruling party Alianza PAIS and independent movements. Seven councilors voted in favor.
“The arrival of Maduro to Quito lands can only generate the rejection of the citizens who believe in democracy,” said Del Pozo, after his request was denied (I).
