OAS postpones special session on Paraguay

The Organization of American States (OAS) on Tuesday adjourned the special meeting to again discuss the situation in Paraguay after the impeachment of President Fernando Lugo in the Senate of that country.

The meeting was originally convened for Monday July 9.

Now the consultation on possible actions that could be discussed regarding the political crisis in that South American nation will be held at OAS headquarters in Havana, at 10:00 local time, 1400 GMT, according to a terse statement.

The document did not explain the reasons for the postponement.

José Miguel Insulza, secretary-general, made earlier this week a visit to Asuncion, the head of a so-called “mission briefing” composed of representatives of Canada, Honduras, Haiti and Mexico.

Insulza and his team met with Lugo, as well as the new president Federico Franco, Foreign Minister Jose Fernandez Estigarribia, and legislators, members of the Supreme Court, the Electoral Supreme Court, journalists and representatives of social organizations and business.

The week before the OAS Permanent Council held a special meeting on the subject, but evaded the application of specific measures to address the political crisis.

In contrast, Venezuela’s ambassador Roy Chaderton, ruled that the agency has had a “timid response to the circus” that took place in the Paraguayan parliament.

Chaderton called the Paraguayan parliamentary group “herd of dinosaurs” without evidence and dismissed in a few hours on June 22 Lugo, legitimately elected by his people.

So far the strongest pronouncements and postures have come from the Latin American environment, after governments like Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Cuba, among others, criticized in the strongest terms that qualify as a parliamentary coup in Asuncion.

The Southern Common Market and the Union of South American Nations agreed to exclude the southern nation until elections are carried out which product to emerge a leader of the popular will.
