CARACAS, Venezuela. – Comptroller General of Venezuela Manuel Galindo said this Thursday that the National Constituent Assembly advancing in his country will continue maintaining in force the Bolivarian spirit of the Constitution of 1999.
Galindo asserted the original Constitution of the Bolivarian Government will not disappear when the Constituent is installed, as opposition leaders would have people believe.
When consulted on the supposed right-wing plebiscite the Comptroller General of Venezuela said it is an unnecessary mechanism, because President Nicolas Maduro’s initiative is endorsed in the Constitution.
He also said the consultative referendum the opposition promotes to July 16 has no legal character, and in that sense highlighted the peaceful position of Maduro government in the face of the current situation in the country.
