Venezuela’s Maduro calls vote for new ‘constituent’ assembly | Reuters


CARACAS Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced on Monday a national vote to create a new “constituent” National Assembly legislature in order to defuse a bitter political conflict after a month of anti-government protests.


Opponents say the move is another attempt to sideline the current opposition-led National Assembly and keep the unpopular Maduro in power in the midst of a bruising recession and unrest that has led to 29 deaths in the last month.
