Venezuela Fedecamaras urges government to abort rewriting the country's constitution vote

 

 

 

CARACAS
Petroleumworld 07 26 2017

Venezuela's main business guild Fedecamaras demanded on Tuesday that President Nicolas Maduro's government abort a controversial vote scheduled for Sunday to create a special congress capable of rewriting the country's constitution.

Critics have called it a dictatorial move and U.S. President Donald Trump threatened last week to impose economic sanctions on Venezuela if it went ahead.

Fedecamaras said the Constituent Assembly was "unconstitutional and unnecessary" and not the way out of Venezuela's crisis.

"We demand the executive branch abandon its intention to impose a new constitution," the group said in a statement.

Maduro has vowed the vote will go ahead on Sunday and slammed critics, who he says do not have the country's interests at heart.

Venezuela is undergoing a major political and economic crisis, with millions suffering food shortages and months of anti-government unrest in which more than 100 people have been killed.
