OAS chief says Venezuela should be suspended if no elections heldThe head of the Organization of American States called on members to suspend crisis-hit Venezuela’s membership unless the leftist government of President Nicolas Maduro quickly holds credible elections. OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro called on Venezuela “as soon as possible” to hold “free, just and transparent” elections that can be observed by international monitors. If not, “it would be the right time to suspend Venezuela from OAS activities in accordance with Article 21 of the Inter-American Democratic Charter,” Almagro said in a 75-page letter to the group’s Permanent Council.
