“The right of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to exercise sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity is declared competent.” [del país] and the right to political participation and the holding of the consultative referendum to be held on December 3, 2023,” declares the document issued by the TSJ.

The ruling indicated that any action undertaken by foreign natural or legal persons, as well as international organizations or national States, will have no legal value. In addition, he ordered the National Electoral Council (CNE) to continue the preparatory work for the consultative referendum.

In the TSJ document, Venezuela's ignorance of the Paris Arbitration Award of 1899 was ratified and it was declared that the Geneva Agreement of 1966 is the only document that they recognize with legal value in terms of international law regarding sovereignty over the Essequibo.

“All the actions that the Government of Guyana has undertaken are illegal, they are not supported by any legal or historical reason. Venezuela will continue to respond firmly and in accordance with its democratic principles and international law,” Rodríguez wrote in his X account.

Guyana asked the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to take five provisional measures to "block" the referendum, since they classify this democratic tool, provided for in the Venezuelan Constitution, as "an existential threat to Guyana and more than two thirds of its territory".

Venezuela Todo campaign command highlights the importance of the electoral simulation in view of the consultative referendum

On this day, the national head of the Venezuela Todo campaign, Jorge RodrĂ­guez, highlighted the importance of the electoral simulation in view of the consultative referendum in defense of Guayana Esequiba.

In this sense, RodrĂ­guez highlighted the commitment of Venezuelans from different sectors who joined the defense of the Essequibo territory, and highlighted that the campaign has borne fruit of unity throughout the nation to defend the attacks of the Guyanese Government.

"Faced with that madness that cost Exxon Mobile 18 million dollars, requesting that Venezuela suspend the consultative referendum, we went to the Supreme Court and asked for constitutional protection to defend our right to choose, to vote on December 3 "RodrĂ­guez said.

The president of the National Assembly also stressed that the day before, "the Supreme Court of Justice declared itself competent to the request for protection" made by the deputies of Venezuela.

"Consequently, any decision or material acts of national or foreign natural or legal persons, international organizations or national states that ignore or prevent or attempt to hinder the right of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to exercise sovereignty in dependence on territorial integrity, in accordance to articles 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 of the Constitution," he explained.

RodrĂ­guez also expressed that his nation will not allow the interventionist actions of Guyana and the International Court of Justice.

"Venezuela's affairs are resolved by Venezuelan men and women. Venezuela's rights are exercised in Venezuela and no legal, national person, no entity, no Government, no foreign institution can come and dictate to us what we should do or what we should not do." "he indicated.

Likewise, RodrĂ­guez assured that the International Court of Justice lacks the power to prohibit and decide on Venezuela's actions.

"It would be one more act of barbarism if the International Court of Justice told us Venezuelans that the consultative referendum is prohibited," he stressed.
