The deputy to the National Assembly (NA), Omar Barboza, warned Venezuelans that the regime’s Anti-Blockade Law aims to give the appearance of legality to corruption and any idea that Nicolas Maduro may have to destroy the country.
“We are before a delirious dictatorship, which besides usurping power, imagines that it can deceive everyone by pretending legality in its intention to give free and uncontrolled rein to the corrupt exercise of power,” he said.
The parliamentarian of Un Nuevo Tiempo pointed out that the so-called “Anti-blockade Law” shows up attempting to justify the failure of the regime’s management, and among its objectives is to legalize whatever comes to Maduro ‘s mind to continue destroying the national economy and to be able to freely dispose of the goods of all Venezuelans without any type of control.
The deputy said that the document proposed by the regime through the illegal constituent assembly lacks legality because all laws must be approved by the legitimate National Assembly. He assured that the constituent assembly does not have this attribution because it is only a political organ of the regime. Its origin has no constitutional foundation nor the support of popular sovereignty through the vote.
“To be called a Constitutional Law, is one more farce to confuse, because in Venezuela all organic, special and ordinary laws are constitutional or are not laws, but have as main condition that they must be approved by the National Assembly in accordance with Article 202, or they are not constitutional,” he argued.
Barboza recalled that in recent times the flawed decisions of the Judicial Power at the service of the regime, and the so-called constituent, has allowed Maduro to enforce an economic emergency since 2016 that has done nothing but continue to destroy our economy.
“This so-called law goes to the extreme of trying to legalize what the usurping executive has been doing but now as ‘”secreto” (secret) whatever they come up with with the nation’s assets, in the belief that by doing so they ensure impunity for their crimes while hunger wreaks havoc with the lives of Venezuelans every day,” concluded the parliamentarian.
