BREAKING NEWS: The Supreme Court of Venezuela urges the Prosecutor’s Office to investigate the National Assembly for usurping functions

The Supreme Court of Justice indicated to the National Assembly that it violated the Constitution usurping exclusive responsibilities of the President of the Republic by appointing representative to the OAS.

The President of the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), Juan José Mendoza, urged the Public Ministry (MP) to determine the responsibilities of the members of the National Assembly (AN), regarding the usurpation of powers of the Executive.

It also ratified the unconstitutionality of the acts of the AN and found that it continues in contempt.

Mendoza noted that the National Assembly “expressly violates Article 236, numerals 4 and 15, as it seems to usurp the competence of the President of the Republic in directing the foreign relations of the State.” In reference to celebrate and ratify treaties, conventions and international agreements, as well as the exclusive attribution of the Executive Power to declassify the heads of diplomatic missions.

“These agreements imply the execution of an act of force that seeks to repeal the constitutional text and all the consequential acts of the national Public Power,” explained the president of the Supreme Court.

In this sense, he reiterated that “everything related to acts of the Government corresponds to the President of the Republic as an organ of the Executive Power.” Therefore, the acts of the AN “violate articles 137, 138 and 139 constitutional because they incur usurpation powers of the Executive Power by modifying the form of State and government.”
