The Venzuela Supreme Court (TSJ) has overturned the precautionary measure issued in mid-June that led to the judicial suspension of the leadership of the opposition Primero Justicia (PJ) party, which includes the former candidate, President Henrique Capriles and Deputy Julio Borges.
The court announced the change this Friday with a brief note on its website confirming the suspension of the measures enacted on June 16 at the request of José Brito and Conrado Pérez, former PJ members and critics of the line, by the Leadership in relation to the December general election.
The original order implied giving the plaintiffs control of the party and hence the name and emblem of the formation, which, according to Chavismo, would have enabled them to register PJ among the candidates for the renewal elections of the National Assembly.
Primero Justicia has made it clear in a series of messages on Twitter that the latest resolution does not change the “institutional situation” of the formation which “will continue to be a party serving the people of Venezuela and democracy”. With this in mind, he has made it clear that he will not take part in the “illegitimate process”.
