Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro appealed to his country's citizens to vote against North American imperialism on Sunday, after asking that the US administration respect Venezuela's democratic system.
"I call on Venezuelans to give it a slap in the face and demand respect from the U.S. government for the Venezuelan electoral system and the sovereign will of the people that will be expressed next Sunday, to vote against U.S. imperialism, everyone who votes on Sunday votes against U.S. imperialism," Maduro said during a speech.
Maduro stated that in previous U.S. elections, the results took roughly two months to be known, and former President Donald Trump (2017-2021) accused Joe Biden of stealing the elections from him, and Venezuela did not intervene in that country's internal affairs.
"The world said nothing about the shame of the U.S. electoral system, nobody trusts the U.S. electoral system, then they come to give their opinion about the Venezuelan electoral system, that's why we have to go out and vote for the dignity of Venezuela," he said.
Maduro has emphasized on numerous occasions that his country has managed to maintain its sovereignty in recent years despite sanctions and assault from the Northern Giants.
