Caracas, Nov 8 (Prensa Latina) The Second Vice President of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) of Venezuela, Gladys Requena, on Friday noted the achievements made in the talks between the government and opposition sectors.
‘Venezuela and President Nicolas Maduro are setting an example,’ Requena told Venezolana de Television, noting the compliance with agreements like the return of lawmakers from the Bloque de la Patria, made up of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela and its allies from the Gran Polo Patriotico, to the National Assembly (AN), a Parliament in a situation of contempt.
In that regard, she noted that as long as that institution remains in contempt, its actions are totally void, and emphasized the need to rescue that space to advance.
Requena pointed out that part of the function of the new negotiations is to assess the process to renovate the National Electoral Council (CNE).
She recalled that the ANC was invoked to be an arbiter or a guarantor to validate the development of bills in line with constitutional, legal and institutional norms, and to guarantee an atmosphere of peace in the talks with Venezuela’s right-wing sectors. The lawmaker added that the Venezuelan government is committed to guaranteeing peace.
