El Salvador on Sunday ordered a Venezuelan diplomat to leave the country within 24 hours, following Nicolas Maduro’s appointment as president.

El Salvador’s government in a statement said President Nayib Bukele has recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president, until a free election is held in the South American country.

In a statement, the government said the country would receive a new diplomatic corps from Venezuela, which was appointed by Guaido.

“The country is waiting for a new recognized diplomatic delegation of Venezuela”, the statement said.

In addition to El Salvador, several other countries recognized Guaido, citing uncertainties in Maduro’s re-election process.

Currently, opposition leaders have dominated several Venezuelan embassies abroad, including the United States and Costa Rica, but have still failed to force Maduro to resign.
