The governor of the state Táchira, Laidy Gómez, asserted that she has received threats from extreme right-wing sectors, due to her supposed “fear” of recognizing Juan Guaidó as “interim president” of Venezuela.
This was exposed by the regional president, during an opposition rally held this Saturday, February 2, in Táchira state.
“I am going to refer to some threats that have been generated against (me) the governor of Táchira. I say to Venezuela: the governor of Tachira is not afraid to support the National Assembly, the governor of Tachira is not afraid to support all Venezuelans who are showing their faces, like Juan Guaidó, who came out to give the face for his people, ” she said.
“Gentlemen, here we do not want a civil war. We here do not want the interventionism that comes to generate the death of Venezuelans. Here we want to tell us. Here we want elections. Here we want the renewal of powers to be a reality, ” she said.
