brussels - A constitutional meeting, elected under questionable and violent circumstances, can not be the solution to the crisis in Venezuela. That is the reason why the European Commission is responding to the controversial election on Sunday Monday with at least ten deaths.
'The events of the last 24 hours have strengthened the concerns of the EU about the fate of democracy in Venezuela,' the statement said. 'The EU condemns the excessive and disproportionate use of violence by security forces. We express our participation in the family and friends of the victims. '
The President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, responded after a telephone conversation with opposition leader Leopoldo López. 'It's a sad day for democracy in Venezuela. We will not recognize this election. '
