The head of the national constituent Assembly of Venezuela Diosdado Cabello has not ruled out that this temporary authority may extend its work for another few years.
Initially elected in 2017 Assembly (beginning 4 August) should work until August 2019. The purpose of convening the meeting, which received full legislative power, instead of opposition of the Parliament, there have been amendments to the Constitution and reconciliation after mass protests.
«Let’s make this the national constituent Assembly during the time that he is working – whether it’s a year, two years, three years, four years — completely and totally the rebel national constituent Assembly,» said Cabello on Monday for events to mark the first anniversary of the work of the authority.
The meeting is fully controlled by supporters of President Nicolas Maduro. The opposition in Venezuela and many countries have not recognized the elections to the Assembly, indicating that its scheduling must be done through a referendum.
