Magistrate Juan José Mendoza, president of the Constitutional Chamber of the TSJ, informed on Monday that the Supreme Court of Justice declared the National Assembly’s directive null and void, so that all its actions have no valid legality:
“It was annulled the appointment of the new board of directors of the National Assembly and all the subsequent acts that were generated to contradict the orders of compliance of the Supreme Court of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela”.
In this sense, the TSJ considered that the actions of the boards of directors of the AN in 2017,2018 and 2019 are null, due to the “unconstitutionality by omission of the National Legislative Power to not have dictated the necessary measures to ensure compliance of the Constitution”.
The parliamentary acts of the National Assembly held on January 5, 2019, as well as the act held on January 9, 2019 were also annulled: “The National Assembly does not have an updated board of directors”, said Mendoza.
Likewise, the magistrate enumerated the institutions that the National Assembly has defied with his actions: “They are disowning the Judiciary Power by disregarding its sentences, to the Electoral Power that carried out the electoral process in which was elected, proclaimed and sworn in as constitutional president of Venezuela for the 2019-2025 term the citizen Nicolás Maduro Moros, to the Executive Power by disowning the investiture of the holder, and the most serious one, to the holder of the sovereignty: The People, who elected it in transparent elections through universal, direct and secret vote” .
Finally, he recalled that “in 2017 this chamber declared the unconstitutionality of the National Assembly, consequently the parliamentary act of January 5, 2017 was annulled, and it was decided that any action will be null”.
