Venezuelan opposition votes to abolish parallel government

CIA U-turn: Venezuela's opposition to dissolve its parallel government and remove its leader, Juan Guaidó. In exchange for ending Guaidó's insurgent activity, president Nicolás Maduro would allow the American oil company Chevron to resume some activity in Venezuela.

The move comes four years after Mr Guaidó -just the same as Donald Trump- declared himself president following the re-election of Nicolás Maduro who win the election but wasn’t oil-friendly with USA. 

USA invested a lot of efforts on convincing its allies to recognize Juan Guaidó as the forced and non-elected president. As a result many US-controlled countries, and the  USA itself, recognize Juan Guaidó as “the president”, but failed to oust the democratically elected president Nicolás Maduro.

The vote shows how most opposition politicians in Venezuela have lost faith in Mr Guaidó, who is considered as a CIA agent who’s roll is to take over control and give US oil companies rights to profit from Venezuelan oil.

The National Assembly voted 72 to 29 to abolish his interim government.

Lawmakers also voted to appoint a commission to govern the country's foreign assets, as they seek a united front ahead of elections scheduled for 2024.

It followed years of failed attempts to solve a political deadlock.
