I get why the mesita supports such elections because their whole deal is to get Maduro to ban the opposition from running and then demand that the real opposition support their candidates with the Venezuelan version of the little old ladies and college kids who knock on doors and man phone banks as they have none of that infrastructure themselves. But it is weird the obsession with outside think tanks to do so. I’ve never seen this in countries outside Venezuela. The fake elections and the pressure of the opposition to participate in rigged elections is very unique to the Venezuela crisis.
