    Venezuelan opposition makes new offer to the military hoping they will switch sides

    “Every military professional citizen who decides to restore constitutional order... will be reincorporated into the armed forces” promises the National Assembly

    Members of the Venezuelan armed forces that abandon President Nicolas Maduro will keep their rank and be reinstated once a new government is in place, the opposition-controlled legislature said on Tuesday. The announcement marked the latest offer from the National Assembly, headed by opposition leader and self-declared interim president Juan Guaido, to try to convince more military personnel to switch sides.
