In Venezuela, U.S.-backed opposition figure Juan Guaidó says he plans to return to the National Assembly today, as confusion reigns over who is the president of Venezuela’s National Assembly. On Sunday, Guaidó claimed he wasn’t allowed to enter the legislative palace in Caracas to participate in the disputed vote for the Assembly leader. Videos of him attempting to jump a fence guarded by security forces circulated in social media and news outlets. But his version of the events is being questioned by opposition members who did take part in the session and say Guaidó could have participated, too. Venezuelans are calling on Congress to clarify who is the current president of the National Assembly as the political crisis escalates.
Enrique Vizcaino: “The person who should be in charge of the National Assembly is the one who the congressional deputies swore in. If the lawmakers choose person X, then person X is the one who should be in charge, not a different person. I think it is wrong that Guaidó swore himself in on his own again. It is not right.”
