Lawrence Castro, deputy to the National Assembly (NA) for the state of Merida, condemned on Tuesday the decision of the TSJ to suspend the board directors of the party Voluntad Popular and place Jose Gregorio Noriega at the head of an ad-hoc board. Castro said this measure, which has already been applied to other parties, is the new way in which the Maduro administration is dedicated to “stealing parties” to go for congressional seats.
“From Mérida we reject this crude and low political action of political slobs. We reject this action and we tell the world that this theft of parties is the new way to say that in Venezuela there is a democracy, when what we see every day is the performance of the criminal and malicious dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro and his allies,” he whipped.
The TSJ/ANC suspended the board of directors of the VP party, chaired by Leopoldo Lopez and appointed an ad-hoc board that will be led by Congressman Jose Gregorio Noriega. This was established in the ruling issued Tuesday by the Constitutional Chamber of the court linked to ‘chavismo’, where they decree “a precautionary measure of constitutional protection consisting of suspending the current National Directorate of the organization with political purposes Voluntad Popular.”
The political scientist and founding member of the VP said that this attempt to take away the party from its true representatives is to ‘confuse’ the people. “We from VP Merida reject the attempt of the communist court of Maduro to take away, change and take away our initials. They intend to continue lying, stealing and confusing the people of Venezuela”.
“Venezuelans are clear that what they are trying to stage as a parliamentary election is just a bad joke, a cruel joke to continue pretending that Maduro has popular support and to try to unsettle the NA that today is decidedly opposed to the dictatorship that continues to crush the civil, economic and social rights of Venezuelans,” he said.
