Caracas' El Nacional newspaper has been handed over to United Socialist Party of Venezuela Deputy Chairman Diosdado Cabello Rondón, thus executing a judiciary ruling issued late in January in a damages suit against the publication.
Two lawmakers in Venezuela have both declared themselves parliamentary Speaker after a tumultuous day in the country's politics. US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaidó and rival Luis Parra both claimed to be Speaker of the National Assembly on Sunday.
Venezuelan opposition newspaper El Nacional, a vociferous critic of President Nicolás Maduro's government, will not be printed Friday, December 14, after 75 years due to lack of paper, Jorge Makriniotis announced. El Nacional's general manager added he hoped it was just a temporary measure.
