Unable to begin session today, the Venezuelan National Assembly on Wednesday will plan to remove magistrates of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) that carried out the coup d’etat which would have prevented a recall vote against the current President, Nicolas Maduro.
The only point to discuss will be the rupture of the constitutional order and the permanence of the coup in Venezuela.
Although the TSJ assures that the National Assembly can not dismiss magistrates because it continues to “disrespect” their orders, the Parliament will fulfill its commitment of the removal. This comes after the same Attorney General of the Republic publicly admitted that in Venezuela there was a rupture of the constitutional order.
It should be noted that most of the jurists do not meet the requirements established to be judges of the Supreme Court. In the list are magistrates with chavista curriculum and of little impartiality like Calixto Ortega, the president of Supreme Court, Gladys Gutiérrez, and even Lourdes Benicia Suárez Anderson, the sister of the prosecutor Danilo Anderson.
