Capriles: "If passed, Venezuelans would disregard the Enabling Law"

"The Constitution backs all Venezuelans up in disregarding those powers that would not exist, because they would be grounded on an utter violation. The Constitution itself forces us to enforce it," opposition leader Henrique Capriles stated on Tuesday on his live web show Venezuela Somos Todos ("Venezuela is all of us")

"I say responsibly to the country that if they (pro-government officials) want to pass an Enabling Law throughout abuses and disregarding the Constitution, we, Venezuelans would disregard such law," Henrique Capriles Radonski, Miranda state Governor and opposition leader stressed on Tuesday on his live web show Venezuela Somos Todos ("Venezuela is all of us") as he commented that President Nicolás Maduro would request special legislative powers via an Enabling Law to the National Assembly in order to allegedly fight against corruption.

Capriles asserted that the Enabling Law could only be passed with the votes of three fifths of all the Parliament members (99 votes), and not three fifths of the votes of the deputies present in a given session. "The Constitution backs all Venezuelans up in disregarding those powers that would not exist, because they would be grounded on an utter violation. The Constitution itself forces us to enforce it," Capriles remarked.

He added that he had "absolute trust" in the deputies of the Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) to avoid the approval of the Enabling Law.
