Opposition leader Juan Guaido’s foreign affairs commissioner, Julio Borges, said he would quit his post Tuesday and that Guaido’s interim government should disappear without changes to the decree that created it.

Borges said he would propose changes to the 2019 decree that formed the interim government at an opposition-led National Assembly session Tuesday and that the government would completely disappear by Jan. 5 if nothing is amended.
