Opposition legislators believe Maduro’s anti-corruption campaign was designed in Cuba

In the context of the debate over President Maduro having asked the National Assembly for especial habilitante powers to “fight corruption,” 67 opposition representatives signed last week (August 22) a public communique criticizing that petition.

Paragraph 7 of the text states that: “We must alert the country about the facts and the information we have in our power and that lead us to the conviction that the petition by the President of special powers, supposedly to combat corruption, has in reality an electoral aim of being used to justify executive procedures against the government’s political adversaries so that the Venezuelan people is precluded from knowing what is really happening in our country. This plan has been devised in Cuba so that it can continue to have access Venezuela’s resources.”
