Maduro will be sworn in as acting president on Friday
Speaker of the National Assembly Diosdado Cabello said the swearing-in will take place Friday at 7:00 pm, to comply with the provisions of the Constitution. He added Nicolás Maduro shall call a new election to choose the next head of state
Cabello convened a special session of the National Assembly in the Hall of Honor of the Military Academy of Venezuela to hold the swearing-in ceremony.
Cabello added Maduro shall call a new election to choose the next head of state.
A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
