A total of 277 elected representatives received their credentials at CNE regional headquarters in order to proclaim the new Assembly in January 2021.

The opposition Democratic Action Party (DA) obtained 11 representatives, Progressive Advance party (PA) 3, The Change (LC) 3, Venezuela First (VF) 2, while the Social Christian Party and Venezuela's Communist Party of Venezuela gained 1 lawmaker each one.
