Juan Guido, interim president of the republic, said on Friday that the government's transition process would take between six and nine months to take effect.
"This process may take six to nine months, we would like it to be less, but we have to implement these plans as soon as possible," Guaydo said in an interview with Antena3.
He pointed out that the priority is currently the proposal for new presidential elections, but in order to carry out their bias the National Electoral Council (CNE) must recover.
"The presidential elections should take place as soon as possible, but we have to go through re-institutionalization, CNE is extremely committed to the ruling leaders and the electorate must be cleansed," he said.
