"We are ready to normalize Venezuela's legislative agenda," said the newly elected president of the Venezuelan National Assembly Luis Parra said.
The new President of the National Assembly (NA) of Venezuela Luis Parra said Monday that the new directive will work to "reactivate the legislative agenda" and move towards the formation of a National Electoral Council (CNE) to regulate the next round of elections in the country.
Luis Parra: We make a call, this parliament is a civilian one, we make a call to the Armed Forces, that we respect them but they must return to the Constitution and that they must not be in command of any political bias
"The development of the actions is aimed at serving the Venezuelan people, above and beyond personal interests," he insisted.
Meanwhile, Parra specified that during Sunday's voting session there was a quorum with the participation of 150 lawmakers, of which 81 supported the new board of directors.
"Everyone stayed until the vote, no one nominated another board, no one asked for verification because the result was conclusive," he explained.
Parra also assured that, during the election, all the orders of the Constitution for this process were respected. Finally, highlighting that no country in the world "has the authority to guide an autonomous Parliament."
