Caracas, Dec 14.- The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, today called on the new National Assembly (unicameral Parliament) to create an investigative commission on the funds given by the United States to the opposition.
During a meeting with the ministerial cabinet, the president asked the deputies of the legislative body to settle on January 5, 2021 to promote an investigation into the acts of corruption of the opposition leader Juan Guaidó and his circle of collaborators with financial resources allocated to the destabilization of the country.
The head of state affirmed that Washington allocated at least one billion dollars to the sector of the extreme right led by Guaidó , recognized since January 2019 by the US administration of Donald Trump as president in charge, in an act of usurpation perceived in Caracas as an attempt to coup.
In this sense, Maduro also invited the United States congressmen to seriously investigate the destination of the resources delivered by the Trump Government to the radical opposition of Venezuela to conspire against the peace of the South American country as part of the policy for a change regime.
Likewise, the head of state denounced a series of conspiracies drawn by extreme right groups in complicity with external factors to sabotage the legislative elections held on December 6.
In this regard, Maduro highlighted the success of the so-called Plan 76, a security and intelligence operation with a wide deployment of troops throughout the national territory to guarantee the success of the democratic exercise, in which the alliance of the Great Patriotic Pole obtained a categorical victory.
The unitary bloc of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela and other political organizations related to the Bolivarian Revolution won 253 seats out of the 277 in dispute.
Maduro ratified the Plan 200 proposal, aimed at launching new laws and actions aimed at consolidating the well-being of the country in the first 200 days of the next legislature. (Text and photo: PL)
