In Venezuela, ready to negotiate with the United States
Venezuelan authorities are ready to begin the negotiation process with their American counterparts to discuss bilateral relations. This was stated by the Foreign Minister of the Bolivian Republic, Jorge Areas. “The time has come for diplomacy. We are ready to sit at the negotiating table,” he said.
But the foreign minister also noted that “the United States was defeated in its actions against Venezuela.” At the same time, Jorge Areas said that “the Venezuelan government is inclined to establish mechanisms for dialogue with the American administration.”
Since this January, there are street protests and rallies across the country against President Maduro. The Venezuela opposition leader, Juan Guaidó, has declared himself the interim president and the United States and some European countries recognized him as the legitimate head of state.
Algerians Protest 13th Friday in a Row
Algerians from 29 out of 48 wilayets (regions) of Algeria, despite Ramadan, protest 13th Friday in a Row Demanding “Clean” Government.
In the southern regions of the country, it was decided to postpone the demonstration for the evening, as the daytime temperature reached 350C.
In the capital, it is unknown the exact number of protesters, but, according to unofficial data, this Friday, there were no less than in previous demonstrations – hundreds of thousands.
– They want to destroy us, but they will not succeed, by the will of God! – Omar, one of protesters, says. – We told them that they were all cleaned, which means – all of them! We are not afraid of their revenge. We want to choose those who represent us.
In some areas, clashes with law enforcement forces occurred. The police used tear gas. But, in general, the action ended peacefully. Due to the hot weather, 10 participants of demonstrations appealed to for medical aid.
Matteo Salvini unites euroskeptics
“The euroskeptics, from my point of view, are those who govern Europe now,” Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said, adding that he wanted to return to “pre-Maastricht rules” when there were no limits on borrowing.
League party leader Salvini is staging a rally on Saturday of nationalist and far-right movements, looking to forge an alliance of euroskeptic groups that can shape policy-making across the 28-nation European Union.
“Eurosceptics are those who are now leading Europe. Anti-Europeans are Socialists and People’s party. For many Europeans, the European Union is a nightmare,” he told reporters after the leaders of some of Europe’s far-right parties met in Milan to form an alliance called “Towards a Europe of Common Sense.”
Populists from 11 European countries, including France’s Marine Le Pen staged a joint rally in Italy, setting their sights on gaining more power.
“For the first time, 11 parties will come to Italy to sign an agreement that will help create a new Europe. We are united by two topics – protection of borders and creation of new jobs,” Salvini said.
Hungarian Prime Minister and leader of Fidesz party, Viktor Orban, will not come to Milan, according to media.
Zelensky would be prevented to dissolve Rada
Ukraine’s ruling coalition broke up Friday after the People’s Front party quit outgoing President Petro Poroshenko’s faction, potentially paving the way for incoming President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to call a snap election. “We declare our withdrawal from the current coalition, the cessation of its activities and the initiative to form a new coalition with a new agenda,” Andriy Parubiy, Verkhovna Rada Speaker and the People’s Front faction member, told parliament.
Parliament now has one month to form a new coalition or else the president can dissolve parliament and call snap parliamentary elections.
And in a dramatic move last week, the Rada announced the collapse of the ruling parliamentary coalition. According to parliamentary rules, the Rada can’t be dissolved for 30 days after the governing coalition has been disbanded. Since last month’s election, Zelenskiy’s opponents in the Rada sought to put off the inauguration (May 20) close to the May 27 deadline by which the parliament can be dissolved.
Zelenskiy’s supporters argue that the Rada’s actions are legally void because the coalition had long ceased to exist, at least, for past three years and that the Ukrainian Constitution, unlike the Rada regulations, doesn’t contain such a rule.
