Venezuelan president to request enabling law to fight against corruption
Venezuelan President, Nicolás Maduro will request an enabling law next Tuesday to the National Assembly
Maduro also remarked that new laws should also be drafted in order to permit funding of the political activity of both people and political parties. It would be "a public funding system of the democratic and political activities of the citizens, and political parties and movements," he explained.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
