Why the Rafael Ramírez breaks relationship with the Government of Nicolás Maduro?
In an interview conducted at Rafael Ramírez, he is asked what he is referred to, when he states that he was removed from his position for his opinions on political and economic issues, Rafael responds that a start before being appointed As a representative of Venezuela before the UN, it served in 2013 as an economic vice president, since it is broadly knowledge in this area, he warned about the complications in the framework of the economic issue, in fact affirms that he had an action plan to face this difficulty, but this plan was rejected because it did not have political support.
In such a way that the first reason why Ramírez leaves from the nations was because his proposals were discarded and discarded, causing that he could no longer continue in the country with the specific weight he had in the areas Economic and political.
Then comes out of Venezuela to occupy the position of representative of Venezuela before the UN, where it remained for two years in silence, began to write articles very focused on economic issues, government management and oil management In Venezuela, uncomfortable more one person within them to the President Nicolás Maduro.
I assure Ramírez, which Nicolás Maduro told him that he did not feel comfortable with him to continue in the nations, once the annoying of the head of state, could not continue in the position and assure that unfortunately Leave your post for your political opinions.
