Venezuela dis­obe­di­ence

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

VENEZUELA’S op­po­si­tion, in­vok­ing an ar­ti­cle in the Bo­li­var­ian Con­sti­tu­tion, said they will refuse to recog­nise the le­git­i­macy of Pres­i­dent Ni­co­las Maduro and his ad­min­is­tra­tion. Claim­ing that the “regime” and all the mea­sures it has im­ple­mented so far were un­con­sti­tu­tional, the Demo­cratic Unity Round­table coali­tion called on sup­port­ers to “dis­obey” the laws.

“The regime is out­side of the con­sti­tu­tion, all its de­ci­sions are un­con­sti­tu­tional, and they can­not be obeyed in ac­cor­dance with the ar­ti­cle 350 of the con­sti­tu­tion,” said op­po­si­tion leader Julio Borges, elected pres­i­dent of the national as­sem­bly.
