In this regard, he said that, if he is reelected, his work will focus on “continuing to make this organization stronger and stronger, and not that it falls into the dark and irrelevant periods of the past, we must serve impartially, but not neutrally, all our country members’ needs. The priority is to defend democracy and human rights in the region.”

It is worth remembering that the elections to elect the OAS Secretary General, for the period 2020-2025, are scheduled to take place on March 20 of the coming year. The winner must have the vote of at least 18 of the 34 members of the organization.
