MADRID, Jan. 8 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The number two of the 'chavismo', Diosdado Cabello, announced on Wednesday that the Constituent Assembly will take the necessary actions to “restore peace” in the National Assembly, whose presidency vindicates the opposition leader Juan Guaidó and Luis Parra, appointed by the ruling and minority opposition.
“The Constituent Assembly, guarantor of these spaces, communicates to the parties in permanent conflict, in children's fights, that we are observing and we are going to make the decisions that must be taken so that peace is restored at the seat of the Legislative Power “said Cabello.
Cabello recalled that the current National Assembly “is in contempt”, as dictated by the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), which is why the Constituent Assembly had to “assume functions”, as reported by the official VTV network.
“We are not going to paralyze the National Assembly because it does not work,” he said, expressing at the same time his desire that “the sector that has just been elected” to preside over it – although he has not specified which one – “comes out of contempt.”
Thus, the president of the Constituent Assembly has called Venezuelans to “a great mobilization” on January 14. “Chavismo” goes to the street to march for everyone's peace, “he proclaimed.
Cabello has referred to the last turn of the political crisis in Venezuela. On January 5, a vote should be held in the National Assembly to elect the new parliamentary leadership in which the majority opposition that Captain Guaidó hoped to ratify him in office so that he could also continue as the “president in charge” of Venezuela.
However, Venezuelan forces took access to Parliament and prevented Guaidó from entering and the deputies who support him, who finally held the vote in the editorial of the Venezuelan newspaper 'El Nacional', where he was re-elected by 100 votes, 16 more than necessary.
At the same time, Parra was elected by the 'chavistas' deputies and the dissenting opposition as president of the National Assembly, in a vote that has been rejected by much of the international community.
Both Guaidó and Parra presided over two sessions in the National Assembly on Tuesday amid new altercations. The opposition leader took advantage of his return to Parliament to take office as head of the same and “president in charge” of Venezuela for a second term.
