Large number of MEPs did not vote for anti-Maduro resolution

Summary of Disinformation

150 European Parliament members voted against a resolution that would impose sanctions and an ultimatum on Maduro and recognise a parallel president, who is the chairman of Parliament.


Manipulated numbers, employed to promote a Russia-backed, pro-Maduro narrative on Venezuela.

With a vast majority of 439 votes in support, to 104 against and 88 abstentions, the European Parliament on 31 January recognized Juan Guaido as the legitimate interim president until “new free, transparent and credible presidential elections can be called in order to restore democracy.” The same resolution also reiterated the European Parliament’s full support for the National Assembly and condemned “fierce” repression and violence.
