Venezuela debate: Latin America’s moment of truth

The Organization of American States will debate whether the embattled Venezuela government is a democracy after OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro invoked the group’s Democratic Charter. If the OAS determines that Venezuela has violated the charter, it could be suspended from the 34-nation group. It’s a rare event for the United Nations-like group that’s supposed to provide the democratic underpinning for governance in the Americas, but has resisted meddling in other governments’ affairs.

In questioning led by subcommittee chairman Rep. Jeff Duncan, R.-S.C., legislators asked what actions the U.S. government is – and could be – taking to alleviate the suffering of the Venezuelan people, like applying more economic sanctions.
