The President of the Republic, Nicolas Maduro, announced that as a maximum representative of the National Treasury he will not deposit resources to the National Assembly (AN) for their contempt to the Constitution.

“I just made a consultation to the Office of the Comptroller General of the Republic, I am making an official consultation to the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), because, being the NA outside the law, as head of the National Treasury I can not deposit resources for a nonexistent National Assembly”, stressed the Head of State during the broadcast of his program “Contacto con Maduro” (Contact with Maduro) number 62, made from the Junin Theater in Caracas.

In this context, the National Executive requested the payroll of workers in the legislative power, in order to make “a direct deposit to the worker men and women, the workers of the National Assembly who are entitled to their salary, their vacation bonuses and all their enjoyments”.

The President stated that the current representative of the National Assembly, Henry Ramos Allup, has rebelled against the institutions of the Venezuelan State by severely disowning the decisions of the Supreme Court of Justice and other public authorities.

“Ramos Allup, you have drifted away from the Constitution and the laws, Youbecame a madman (…) let them continue with their madness”, he said.

In this regard, the National President reaffirmed his full support to the sentence by the Supreme Court of Justice, which restores the legality and constitutionality in the country.
