Ledezimated

As if taking away their power to legislate wasn’t enough, today AN Chief Inquisitor Cilia Flores is announcing a Reform to the Rules on Debates inside the National Assembly.

You know what comes next: the majority will decide who gets to speak and who doesn’t. The opposition deputies, the ones representing a majority of Venezuelan voters, will be lucky to get a word in.

Add to that the looming sentence that will strip elected deputy Jose “Mazuco” Sanchez of his immunity, thereby disenfranchising the 72% of voters that elected him, and the picture becomes clear: the Ledezimation of the new Parliament is almost complete.
