Democratic coordinating committe in Washington

December 11, 2002

A delegation from the Democratic Coordinator, which groups the opposition, is in Washington today to attempt to address the Council of the Organization of American States. Such a procedure is not included in the Charter of the OAS as only Governments and its representative’s may address the Council. The Democratic Coordinator wants the OAS to invoke the OAS Charter against the Chavez Government citing the numeours violations of the democratic principles in the Charter. Invoking the Charter carries only moral penalties and the country loses its vote unntil the sanction is removed.
