Brazilian foreign minister and OAS chief call for Venezuelan elections

BRASILIA, April 10 (Reuters) - Brazil’s foreign minister and the head of the Organization of American States (OAS) called on Tuesday for elections to restore full democracy in Venezuela, following weekend protests after a political ban on a top opposition leader.

After meeting in the Brazilian capital, OAS head Luis Almagro said elections are the only solution to a political and institutional crisis roiling Venezuela. Brazil’s Foreign Minsiter Aloysio Nunes said the international community must insist that Venezuela confirm its electoral calendar.
