L'Assemblea Nazionale controllata dall'opposizione venezuelana ha accusato la leadership dell'assemblea costituente e delle forze bolivariane di aver realizzato un assalto entrando nel Palazzo Legislativo Federale di Caracas, che ospita le riunioni di entrambi gli organi elettivi. Le elezioni costituzionali, avviate dal presidente venezuelano Nicolas Maduro con l'intento di riscrivere la Costituzione si sono svolte il 30 giugno. L'opposizione venezuelana, così come l'Unione europea e gli Stati Uniti, hanno rifiutato di riconoscere la legittimità del corpo. “Il Palazzo Legislativo federale dell'Assemblea Nazionale è stato aggredito dopo la seduta di lunedì: Delphin Rodriguez, Dario Vivas, Fidel Vasquez, il colonnello Bladimir Lugo e la Gnb, la Guardia Nazionale Bolivariana hanno forzato le porte del Palazzo legislativo Federale”, ha scritto su Twitter l’Assemblea nazionale.

Venezuela's opposition-controlled National Assembly accused the leadership of Constituent Assembly and Bolivarian National Guard forces of committing an assault by entering the Federal Legislative Palace in Caracas, which hosts meetings of both elected bodies. The Constituent Assembly election, initiated by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro with the intention of rewriting the constitution of the unsettled nation, was held on June 30. Venezuelan opposition, as well as the European Union and the United States, among other countries, have refused to recognize the body's legitimacy. "The National Assembly’s Federal Legislative Palace assaulted after the 07/08 Monday session ... Delcy Rodriguez, Dario Vivas, Fidel Vasquez, Col. Bladimir Lugo and the GNB [Bolivarian National Guard] forced doors of the Federal Legislative Palace," the National Assembly posted on its Twitter page, specifying that the incident occurred Monday night. According to the National Assembly, the perpetrators of what they perceive to be an assault were in the building making the necessary preparations for convening a "fraudulent" Constituent Assembly meeting at 10 a.m. local time (14:00 GMT) Tuesday. The opposition-controlled legislative body condemned the move as an "abuse" against those 14 million Venezuelan citizens, who voted for the National Assembly at the December 6, 2015 election. Venezuelan ex-Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez was appointed the Constituent Assembly's president Friday during its first session, which took place at the Federal Legislative Palace. Fidel Vasquez was picked to be the Assembly’s secretary.
