    Venezuelan lawmakers blast Brazilian senators' trip as 'abusive and meddling'

    These political groups are intent “not only to come and threaten but also to torpedo good relations between Venezuela and Brazil” said  Tania Diaz

    Venezuela's ruling Socialist Party legislators reacted to a trip by Brazilian senators to visit jailed opponents of President Nicolas Maduro by describing it as “abusive” and “meddling”. The Brazilian delegation's visit on Thursday was cut short after their minibus was stoned by Maduro supporters and roads were blocked, forcing them to return to the airport and fly back the same day.

    President Maduro will rule the rest of the year with decree powers

    “The US want to stick their hands into Venezuela's wealth, just as they have done in other countries,” ruling party legislator Tania Díaz said, on presenting the “anti-imperialist” bill

    Venezuela's parliament has granted President Nicolas Maduro decree powers for the rest of 2015 in a move he says is to defend the country from US meddling but opponents decry as evidence of autocracy. In a noisy National Assembly session, ruling Socialist Party legislators, who have a majority, applauded the “Enabling Law” as a legitimate response to a US declaration that Venezuela is a security threat and sanctions on seven officials.
