Venezolanos reafirman en las calles apoyo a la Constituyente

Oficialistas marchan este #7Ago en respaldo a la constituyente

Oficialistas marchan este #7Ago en respaldo a la constituyente

La creación de esta comisión fue encargada personalmente por el presidente del país, Nicolás Maduro, que ha adelantado que algunos de los líderes opositores que han convocado manifestaciones contra el Gobierno en los últimos meses irán a la cárcel, al considerarlos responsables de los disturbios en que han desembocado estas marchas.

Entre retratos de Simón Bolívar y Hugo Chávez, acompañados del ministro de Defensa, general en jefe Vladimir Padrino López, y otros miembros del ejército, los constituyentes condenaron el asalto que se registró el domingo en un fuerte militar del centro del país, donde fue hurtado un lote de armas.

En Venezuela el chavismo volvió a mostrar fuerza de calle, esta vez en una movilización para respaldar la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente (ANC).

En un documento que contempla la "reafirmación de la vigencia de la Constitución", rubricado durante una sesión en el Palacio Federal Legislativo, la AN objetó el nombramiento del Defensor del Pueblo, Tarek William Saab como nuevo Fiscal General, en sustitución de Luisa Ortega Díaz.

Pese a la evidente disputa entre la Asamblea Constituyente y la Asamblea Nacional, la presidenta de la primera, Delcy Rodríguez, comentó que hace unos días le envió una comunicación formal al líder de la segunda, Julio Borges, planteando una "convivencia" entre los dos poderes. Los parlamentarios opositores, que pretendían celebrar una sesión sobre la crisis venezolana, indicaron que los militares y grupos de civiles violentos vinculados al gobierno, conocidos como "colectivos", les impidieron el paso y los obligaron a abandonar el lugar de inmediato. "Nosotros nos presentamos, pero fue imposible el acceso por las condiciones que estaban alrededor de la entrada del Palacio Federal", reiteró Millán.

La Asamblea Nacional (AN, Congreso) de Venezuela, de mayoría opositora, acordó este lunes el desconocimiento de todos los actos de la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente (ANC) y calificaron a esta instancia supra-estatal de "ilegal". El exvicepresidente y actual constituyente, Diosdado Cabello, había advertido en público que a la Asamblea Constituyente le correspondería la tutela del Palacio Federal Legislativo y que por tanto se requeriría de su autorización para cualquier actividad.
