The Venezuelan parliament on Sunday will approve the Enabling Act requested by the president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, which will give powers to legislate without parliamentary scrutiny on peace and security, said on Wednesday House sources.
The National Assembly (AN) convened an extraordinary parliamentary session on Sunday to approve on second reading the bill proposed by Maduro, said the government deputy Eduardo Piñate through the social network Twitter.
In the second ballot is expected Maduro request is approved with the support of the chavista majority of the House, which already in the first discussion made clear its firm support to the request.
The ruling party has 99 members, representing a qualified majority of three-fifths of the Assembly, just what is required to pass such laws.
Maduro’s request came after US President Barack Obama declared a “national emergency” by the “extraordinary threat” from Venezuela to US security.
