Venezuelan legislators approved on Thursday during the regular parliamentary session the first reading of the draft enabling law requested by Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on October 8 in an attempt to fight corruption and the so-called economic war.

Until Tuesday, the Government relied on 98 votes only to approve the law whereas opposition legislators totaled 67. However, the inconvenience was overcome two days ago after the revocation of opposition Deputy María Aranguren's parliamentary immunity.

Upon the separation of Aranguren from her position, ruling party Assistant Deputy Carlos Flores took her place, embodying vote 99 in Parliament to approve the aforementioned law.
