Featured Nicaragua Demands OAS Head Step Down Over Abuse of Post

The representative from Nicaragua at the Organization of American States meeting in Santo Domingo said Luis Almagro's behavior was “illegal, disrespectful and arrogant” and made him unfit for office.

The recent actions by the secretary-general of the OAS took center stage Wednesday when the representative from Nicaragua requested Luis Almagro step down for his repeated interference in the domestic affairs of Venezuela.

Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Denis Moncada said: "This repeated behavior of the secretary-general of the OAS disqualifies him to continue in his role and Nicaragua expects, in order to wash the stains and shame of the Organization of American States, that the Secretary-General Mr. Almagro put forward his irrevocable resignation to this plenary meeting today in the Dominican Republic.”

The Nicaraguan representative added that his country believed Almagro was “abusing his post” by acting in an interventionist manner, which risked negatively affecting the stability of the Venezuelan government.
