The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, today has the support of the powers of the State to his constitutional mandate, in the face of the attempted coup d’état sponsored by the government of the United States.
During the opening ceremony of judicial year 2019, the head of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), Maikel Moreno, stated the day before that this institution recognizes Maduro as the only legitimate president of the Bolivarian Republic.
The magistrate indicated that the Supreme Court of Justice does not know of any attempt to usurp the functions of the Executive with the ‘grave purpose of circumventing the will of the people’, in the face of the self-proclamation of the maximum representative of the National Assembly (Parliament in contempt), Juan Guaidó, as ‘president in charge of Venezuela.
Moreno urged the legislative body to depose its attitude of constitutional contempt since 2016, and he also stated that the self-proclamation of Guaidó and his recognition by the United States and other governments in the region was carried out outside the basic principles of international law.
The National Electoral Council (CNE) of Venezuela also repudiated the actions of the national opposition that seek to ignore national sovereignty and call for a coup d’état in the country.
The president of the highest electoral body, Tibisay Lucena, described the swearing in of Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela as shameful and without any legality, during a mass act organized by opposition forces.
The electoral power calls to respect the votes of the citizens who elected the president and the deputies and she rejects any act of violence promoted by sectors adverse to power, emphasized Lucena, who highlighted the transparency of the Venezuelan electoral process.
At the same time, the president of the Republican Moral Council (CMR) and attorney general of the Republic, Tarek William Saab, rejected foreign meddling in the internal affairs of Venezuela and ratified the sovereign and independent character of the nation.
Accompanied by the General Comptroller, Elvis Amoroso, and the Ombudsman, Alfredo Ruiz, Saab released a CMR communiqué in defense of the Constitution, in support of the legitimate president, Nicolás Maduro, and in favor of harmony and coexistence.
The attorney general of the Republic repudiated the position of a minority group of deputies of the National Assembly who ‘acted as puppets of the United States’ and violated the framework of legality, to which the CMR agreed to condemn the attempts to institute a parallel government, illegitimately constituted.
He rejected the ignorance that members of Parliament in contempt maintain of the legality and legitimacy of the rest of the Venezuelan public powers, and he condemned the position of some governments in the region that seek to legitimize a violent change of power.
The legitimate and constitutional president of Venezuela also received the support of all the commanders of the Bolivarian National Armed Force and the governors of 19 states of the South American nation.
