Venezuelan Parliament Calls On Army to Drop Off President Maduro
The political crisis in Venezuela has been aggravated by unrest in the National Guard. Hours after a group of artists revolted in Caracas on Monday, colleagues in videos called on President Maduro to drop off.
The President of Parliament also urged the army not to support Maduro any longer.
The Venezuelan opposition, which has a majority in parliament, wants the armed forces to abandon Nicolás Maduro on Wednesday.
Massive protests are then organised against the new president’s term of office. The parliament has declared this second term unconstitutional.
President of the parliament Juan Guaido called on the generals to demand that Maduro departs on Wednesday. “We do not ask you to commit a coup,” Guaido said in a video.
