Venezuela Supreme Court Assumes Power as Opposition Cries Dictatorship

  • As per reports, Venezuela is heading towards dictatorship as pro-government Supreme Court has assumed the legislative powers of the Congress controlled by opposition. The move has been severely criticized by Peru which recalled its ambassador from the Venezuela. Peru has promised to expedite its efforts to remove Venezuela from the Organization of American States.

    The US also criticized the recent developments as a move to “usurp the power” of the national assembly.

    It has reportedly been justified as a contempt of court by the Supreme Court since efforts for reviving the crisis-stricken country were being delayed by the lawmakers.
