Maduro: Chávez is acting in full capacity as president
He described as a "distorted view" the stance of the opposition in connection with President Hugo Chávez's inauguration date
Maduro said that Article 231 of the Constitution provides that if Chávez fails to be sworn in on January 10, "the Supreme Tribunal of Justice may set a new date and swear in the president." He stressed, however, that "the president and his government are acting in full capacity and will continue to work for the country."
He reiterated that the opposition seeks to manipulate the Constitution. He described as a "distorted view" the stance of the opposition in connection with President Hugo Chávez's inauguration date.
In this regard, he asked people to remain calm and reject calls to a civic strike.
No pellets, tear gas or 9mm firearm projectiles were enough. Several unpublished videos confirm what some witnesses had already warned in the very afternoon of February 12: that day, the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) shot a different type of bullets whose ammunition shells were picked up by the very officers who triggered the weapons.
