The deputies of the National Assembly approved an agreement in rejection of the political persecution of the regime after breaking and revoking the immunity of deputy Juan Pablo Guanipa and two years after the attacks on deputy Freddy Guevara.
The debate was initiated by deputy Avilio Troconiz who warned that “this regime tries to dismember the National Assembly through the persecution of deputies.”
“The barbarity of the crimes attributed to our colleague Juan Pablo Guanipia borders on the absurd. This regime does not forgive Juan Pablo Guanipa who did not kneel down to that fraudulent Cuban constituent who invented it only to submit the National Assembly”, Troconiz said.
For this reason, he affirmed that “from the National Assembly we are going to continue supporting our governor-elect, that man who is going to continue defending Zulia from clandestinity”.
Next, Congressman Manuel Teixeira intervened and asked that state institutions be stopped from being used to persecute other institutions. “We may have differences in speeches and political positions, but we can never use that to persecute the opposition. We should not allow that to continue to happen in the country.
“The regime is bothered by parliamentary immunity, but perhaps in the future that parliamentary immunity will serve to protect them as well”, Teixeira said.
Assemblyman Ismael León added that the dictatorship does nothing but persecute anyone who is against the usurper Maduro. “Every time they arrive here, they say that Bolívar’s sword travels through Latin America, go to the hospitals to see the humanitarian crisis instead of the sword.”
“Here corruption has been the only flag that this revolution has been able to fly. Go to the popular markets and if you want, take Maduro to see how much the Venezuelan suffers with that miserable salary that you have given them”, added León.
He also reiterated that “today we ratify, that the 16th we will all go out to the streets, to defend dignity. This Assembly does not surrender, this Assembly will continue working every day until the usurper leaves Miraflores”.
