The Costa Rican Congress rejected the decision of the Supreme Court of Justice to deprive the National Assembly (NA) of powers.
According to the Congress, this decision is one of “the most serious violations of the rule of law,” so the Legislative Assembly condemned the “violation of the democratic regime” and repudiated this act, which “becomes a coup d’état.”
In addition, it raised an instance to the Government of Costa Rica so that it retires to the maximum diplomatic representation in Venezuela.
The Government of Costa Rica expressed its solidarity with the NA and the people of Venezuela.
The Costa Rican Congress on Thursday urged the Venezuelan government to withdraw its diplomatic representation in Venezuela, by approving a motion for the decision of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) to assume the competencies of the National Assembly.
In that sense, Congress requested the Government of Costa Rica to invoke the application by the Organization of American States (OAS) of the Inter-American Democratic Charter to “adopt and restore constitutional order”.
The representative of the Dominican Republic, for the Dominican Liberation Party, Radhamés Camacho considered that the position of his country in the OAS should be in favor of the sovereignty of Venezuela.
The statements were issued after US Senator Marco Rubio urged the Dominican Republic to refrain from supporting Venezuela in the Organization of American States (OAS)
Likewise, the deputy reaffirmed the sovereign character of the Dominican Republic. “Rubio has to respect our independence and must know that we are not men or women that we kneel before any other nation,” he said in the note.

Lawmaker Elpidio Báez also said that Rubio’s action, which he called coarse, is the way the United States uses to intimidate other countries.
On the other hand, the President of the Senate of the Dominican Republic, Reinaldo Pared Perez, said that the “National Congress will abide by and support any decision made by President Danilo Medina”.
