International Response to Constituent Assembly Election and Implications

The election undertaken by the Venezuelan government to impose a fraudulent Constituent Assembly has drawn a broad international response. The reactions, mostly by countries of the Western Hemisphere and Europe, can be divided into five categories. First, countries not recognizing the Assembly. Second, those only condemning it.  Third, countries which requested the election of the Assembly be postponed or not celebrated. Fourth, countries supporting the Constituent Assembly and fifth, countries avoiding any specific qualification of the Assembly but reiterating that a dialogue should take place to solve the crisis.
