Venezuela's Parliament sent President Nicolas Maduro to resign. The opposition said Maduro personally responsible for the crisis in the country. However, the procedure of impeachment provided by the Constitution of Venezuela, and the Supreme court has recognized the decision of the parliamentarians is illegal.
Even if all 167 members of the National Assembly of Venezuela decided that Nicolas Maduro is no longer President, he still would not have started packing. But in the hall of Parliament, only the opposition. Representatives of Pro-government "Great Patriotic pole" part in pointless procedure make did not. Voters cited 233-th article of the Constitution of Venezuela. The new elections can be appointed only in case if the President is not on duty or is unable to perform his duties. But Nicolas Maduro is healthy, the work goes on regularly, and the impeachment in Venezuela does not exist.
Right politician Julio Borges, a veteran of such battles. But the Supreme court sided with the President and the Basic law. Representatives of the legislative authorities referred to the failure of negotiations on the referendum on the question of early termination of powers of the President and his alleged personal responsibility for the deplorable situation in the economy. In the country three-digit inflation and the deficit. Last year from-for shortages of food and medicine in some regions was a riot. Wave of discontent caused by the recent decree on the withdrawal from circulation of banknotes in 100 bolivars. To save savings, Venezuelans suffered in banks pounds cash. Maduro explained unpopular measure against crime. On the border with Colombia the crime is buying cash, then the money to buy goods from Venezuela, marketed by subsidies, and sell them in Colombia. The economic response should be the release of the new banknotes what Maduro told members of the Cabinet, with the humor coming across news coming from the Parliament.
However, the worst-case scenario Nicolas Maduro is preparing. He has recently appointed a new Vice President who will lead the country if the opposition still gets its way. The course can continue Tarek El-Aissami. The Venezuelan opposition is, in fact, divided. Some believe that we must act legally, from the other camp, there are calls to violent overthrow of the government. El Aissami will head the new organization, whose mission is to resist the coup attempts.
