¡VAMOS BIEN VENEZUELA! JUAN GUAIDÓ'S COUNCIL OF ADVISORS, 2019
crisis manager: JaVIer GUERRERO
Chair: FELIPE LOBO KOERICH
Juan Guaidó’s Council of Advisors is composed of his closest advisors, members of the opposition, and representatives of foreign governments and private enterprises. As the highest level of Guaidó’s resistance, the Cabinet advises him on all matters of governance and politics, especially as they try to establish democracy and free and fair elections in Venezuela. Delegates will work with Juan Guaidó, the Lima Group, and international partners to oust the Nicolás Maduro regime and restore peace and prosperity in Venezuela. Delegates will attempt to combat rising inflation, address food scarcity, and eliminate armed groups operating within Venezuelan territory. As members of Guaidó’s inner circle, will you strive towards a freer, more prosperous, and safer Venezuela?
