The USA places behind Juan Guaidó, has declared that in Venezuela the Transitional head of state. In the view of the Trump government he represents "the only legitimate" organs of the state, because he "had been elected properly" from the Venezuelan people. Swiss politicians are the target of change of power is critical.
Fabian Molina speaks of an "orchestrated coup". "Whatever one's view of Maduro: What is happening in Venezuela is a coup," writes the SP-politician on Twitter. "Presidents come through elections to office, not by the self-coronation."
"The Situation is a process," says Molina on demand. New elections were "the only way out". However, he considers fair elections difficult. "Regime change must be democratic," said the politician. The terms, that an election observer for the UN to be approved. If the U.S. is interested in really his, doubts it. "The USA support the Opposition financially. That Donald Trump Guaidó as interim President acknowledges an hour later, is no coincidence."
whatever you may think of #Maduro: What's happening in #Venezuela is a coup d'état. Nothing else. Presidents come through elections to office, not by the self-coronation.— Fabian Molina (@molinafab) January 23, 2019
Yes, that's true. But to believe that with an orchestrated coup is a little better, is completely naive. It now needs as soon as possible new elections under the supervision of the @UN. Otherwise this will end bloody, and that is certainly not in the interest of the Venezuelan people.— Fabian Molina (@molinafab) January 24, 2019
Molina's Tweet has met with critical reactions. To the statement that the President would come through elections to office, writes about Viktor Giacobbo: "And the President, apparently also by the abuse of power, corruption, and a loyal army in the office...". And SVP national councillor Claudio Zanetti taunts: "What do you think of Maduro, and how did you think of Chávez?"

Although Molina people gives rights violations under the current Regime, he believes, the majority of Venezuelans stood behind the head of the government of Nicolás Maduro. Should prevail in new elections, Juan Guaidó, had to accept the Switzerland, this "of course".
"the Chaos of the Blockade, the United States is due to"
back to Partially cover receives Molina of Luzi Stamm, who also sits in the foreign policy Commission (APK). According to him, Switzerland is likely to follow, as well as the EU, the "sanctions" of the USA. "I don't see the slightest reason why Switzerland should not help", says SVP-national Council. First, Switzerland had to send relief supplies to Venezuela. The Chaos was due according to the diplomat, the economic Blockade of the United States. "Here I am very close with Molina."

on the question of the legitimacy of a change of power root has, however, "a different logic": Maduro and Guaidó are both "opaque". "A change of power, we have to accept it." The list of States with undemocratic governments was long. Nevertheless, the Switzerland recognise the majority of these countries.
"A political act"
China and Russia, the United States warn against this interference. It should be clear that you want to replace with the support of the Opposition "uncomfortable governments," it was said on Thursday in Moscow. The current situation in Venezuela will lead directly to Chaos.
This fear SP-national councillor Carlo Sommaruga. Donald Trump is "not comprehensible". He sent troops not to believe the politicians, however. However, he thinks a civil war is possible. The self-appointment Guaidós was a political act and not legitimate. "For Switzerland it would be difficult to acknowledge him, that would be a novelty in the Swiss foreign policy."
Also Sommaruga calls for a dialogue, all parties would have to lead, and there should be new elections. What bearing have the majority behind him, he could not say. In the foreground the interests of the population.
Harsh criticism of the United States is also the former SP Leader, Franco Cavalli, and exercises. This would have increased pressure on Latin America in the last few months with "a great deal of organizational effort". "And now, this young politician comes by the name of Juan Guaidó that was until a few weeks ago, completely unknown."
Within a few weeks, you've built Guaidó politically, and "within a few minutes, have it recognized in the USA and the whole gang, the consequences of the United States, as the new President of Venezuela," says Cavalli. "Maduro has sure made a lot of mistakes, but this looks like a coup."
Illegitimate Guaidós is also the former SP national councillor Jean Ziegler. The Geneva sociologist and internationally known author said on request: "What is happening in Venezuela, is precisely the same as in 1973, in the coup against the Chilean President Salvador Allende."
left-to-right pattern are unclear
Switzerland was to take the role of facilitator, APK-President Elisabeth Schneider-Schneiter. Neutral Switzerland should do everything to prevent a civil war, so the CVP-politician. Because different powers were in the game, not to take sides and, instead, to humanitarian aid focus.
Wait, SVP national councillor Roland Rino Büchel finds appropriate. "Change must be done democratically," he says. But First, Switzerland should wait with political reactions. "It is not a Populist, the other replaces", as it was about to happen in Brazil.
He could not therefore assess whether the left-to-right pattern is essential. In the first place, the population would be. Because that could put a politician also Makes motivated to the top, whether he's careful.
opinion of the foreign Department
diplomatically, the official Switzerland has so far been largely to the Position taken by other European countries and the EU. Switzerland is following developments "with great concern", the situation had since at least 2016 in terms of democracy, the rule of law, separation of powers and human rights "extremely unsatisfactory," writes EDA spokeswoman Carole Wälti, on request of this newspaper. Between Maduro or Guaidó the Department of foreign Affairs decides not explicitly: "Switzerland acknowledges, in their practice, in principle, only States, not governments."
Basically, the EDA holds firmly but: "Switzerland considers that the national Assembly (Asamblea Nacional) in the Wake of the democratic elections of 2015 as a legitimate, as well as their newly elected President, Juan Guaidó. Their freedoms and powers must be respected and their safety ensured." Switzerland urge "the initiation of a political process that leads to trusted free and credible elections, in accordance with the constitutional order."
