WASHINGTON, USA – The following is a statement from the OAS General Secretariat on incidents in Washington, DC:
The OAS General Secretariat condemns and repudiates the attack against institutions being carried out today in the United States by protesters who disavow recent electoral results.
Democracy has as its fundamental pillar the independence of the powers of the State, which must act completely free of pressure.
The exercise of force and vandalism against the institutions constitutes a serious attack against democratic functioning.
We urge a return to much-needed rationality and a conclusion of the electoral process in accordance with the Constitution and the corresponding institutional procedures.
