The National Assembly unanimously ratified Juan Guaido as president in charge of the country until “the usurpation ceases” by Nicolas Maduro’s regime, according to an agreement approved by the deputies during the ordinary session on Tuesday.
The endorsement came one day after the Maduro dictatorship and the false “opposition” agreed to undertake a dialogue to try to resolve the serious political and economic crisis.
The legislative agreement enshrines “unrestricted political support for the leadership of Juan Guaido as president of the National Assembly and as president in charge (…) until the cessation of usurpation occurs.”
This decision would imply that the opponent, recognized as interim president through fifty countries, will continue to head the chamber after January 5, when his term ends.
The agreement with the minorities was signed after Guaido declared the talks mediated by Norway and held in Barbados since last May, with Maduro’s representatives, “exhausted”.
According to the Venezuelan president, these talks cannot move forward because the government refuses to accept to hold new presidential elections.
