Venezuela's opposition MUD coalition has secured a two-thirds majority in the National Assembly, according to electoral results released Monday and Tuesday after Sunday’s legislative elections.
Meanwhile, the ruling socialist coalition, the GPP, has garnered 55 seats, according to the latest results released by the country's electoral authority, the CNE. The MUD has the support of the three Indigenous legislators, all of whom are aligned with the right-wing.
With a two-thirds “super majority,” the MUD could call for a referendum to oust President Nicolas Maduro, reappoint Supreme Court justices and call a special assembly to make changes to the constitution. The MUD has vowed to seek to remove Maduro from office, and make sweeping changes to the constitution.
