The Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) of Venezuela, determined last night through a newsletter, that the board of the National Assembly sanctioned in accordance with a law in holding that the opposition lawmaker, Maria Corina Machado, lost her seat after accepting the Panama Diplomat charge to speak before the Organization of American States (OAS) two weeks ago.
The report states that “after a careful analysis”, the loss of parliamentary seat by Machado, “comes into effect automatically, with the acceptance of an alternative representation of a country, regardless of its duration, before an international body “.
Last March 24th, the President of the National Assembly, Diosdado Cabello, declared that with this action Machado had automatically lost her investiture as a legislator, after violating Articles 146 and 191 of the Constitution, which prohibits Venezuelan deputies accepting recognition from foreign governments and to have a different parliamentary dedication.
Today, the National Assembly shall have a regular meeting to which Machado announced her attendance to claim for her seat. To do this, she summoned her followers to come together at noon of April 1st at Plaza Brion de Chacaíto (center-east of Caracas).
