The Venezuelan Supreme Court (TSJ), controlled by Chavismo, has given the National Assembly 72 hours in opposition hands to send the list it made with its candidates to the National Electoral Council (CNE). as part of the political struggle to control the electoral process to renew the legislative seat.

“The TSJ Constitutional Chamber has urged the National Assembly to nominate the list of preselected citizens to integrate the TSJ before this chamber within 72 hours from the publication of this regulation,” said in a statement.

In the same note, the Supreme Court has assured that the Constitutional Chamber “positively assesses the work of the constituents who make up the election proposal committee as a political fact.”

This resolution continues last Saturday’s, in which the TSJ ruled in favor of a minority opposition initiative distancing itself from “responsible President” Juan Guaidó and an ally with “Chavismo” in the EU National Assembly.
