Secretary General of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV), Óscar Figuera, asked during an interview on Unión Radio that changes to the Parliament’s Internal Regulations and Debates Law be made known, “to be clear about the rules of the game.”
“We don’t have to join the majority faction of the PSUV, or the opposition, to be able to decide when we should have the floor,” he emphasized.

Figuera referred to the January 19 intervention by alternate deputy, Luisa González, after which the president of the National Assembly, Jorge Rodríguez, asked her to reach agreement with the opposition faction to decide when they could intervene.
Figuera added that at the time, the alternate parliamentarian clarified that “they are a faction of the APR and the PCV that don’t have to be in agreement with the opposition on the time for their intervention.”
Likewise, Figuera added that they’re demanding before the National Electoral Council an “incorrect assignment of the positions in the legislative power,” for which he asked that the terms of assignment be corrected.
The leader of the PCV clarified that the political sphere is not submitted to the opinions of a single person, but to debate and consensus around ideas.
“We do not accept this irrational obedience or subordination to what someone raises… neither within the party nor from outside the party towards the party,” said Figuera.
