FM Jaua heads for Ecuador on Thursday
The Ecuadorian minister of Foreign Affairs twitted on the upcoming visit of his Venezuelan counterpart
Last January 18, Jaua, the Venezuelan ex Vice-President, welcomed Patiño in Caracas. On that occasion, Jaua also met with his Colombian counterpart María Ángela Holguín.
Holguín and Patiño visited Jaua to emphasize their support in view of the illness suffered by Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, who prevented him from being sworn-in for a new term in office beginning January 10.
The adjournment was endorsed by the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) in a controversial ruling.
The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
