In Madrid, protesters reject the rightist politician’s claim to pass for the president in charge of Venezuela.
They emphasize that to be president, they have to be elected by the people and remind that Nicolás Maduro is the constitutional president of the South American country.
The demonstrators showed posters in which they described Guaidó as “clown manufactured by the empire” and demanded his departure from Madrid.

Guaidó arrived at the Adolfo Suárez Madrid Barajas airport at 3:00 p.m. (local time) and plans to meet with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Arancha González Laya. President Pedro Sanchez declined to hold a meeting with the Venezuelan deputy.
The Venezuelan politician has been on an international tour since last weekend, which began in Colombia. Then, Guaidó went to London, where he also had to face popular rejection in a protest by the members of the “Hands off Venezuela” movement.
