The move comes as Maduro seeks to hold onto power amid a U.S.-backed opposition movement. He has faced criticism for consolidating control over Venezuela’s various governmental institutions, and his critics denounced the move as a “parliamentary coup d’état.”

  • Dictadura, dictatorship, dictator, dictator. Just image for a second a right government would do this horrendous act of not respect for democracy. How those dated lefties be condemning this act. But I’m sure because it’s a Maduro is a CNN puppet of Raul Castro they would find justification.
