China Calls on Venezuela to Respect Maduro’s Re-election

BEIJING – China asked on Monday that the decision of the Venezuelan people be respected after the re-election of Nicolas Maduro as president amid the opposition’s demand for new elections, citing irregularities.

“The relevant parties should respect the choice made by the Venezuelan people,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a press conference in Beijing.

Lu reiterated China’s policy of not interfering in the internal matters of other countries and expressed confidence the Venezuelan government and citizens would be capable of resolving those issues.

“China will deal with the relevant issues according to the diplomatic practice,” the spokesperson added.

Maduro won the elections on Sunday after obtaining more than 5.8 million votes to remain president until 2025.

Of more than 20 million eligible voters, only about 8.6 million participated – one of the lowest turnouts in the country’s history.

Former governor Henri Falcon, who came in the second place, and the evangelical pastor Javier Bertucci – the two main candidates who lost to Maduro – said there were many irregularities and called for new elections.
