Opposition: Chávez's no-show for inauguration breaches the Constitution
In a communication delivered to Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Executive Secretary of the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) Ramón Guillermo Aveledo underscored that President Hugo Chávez's no-show at his inauguration ceremony scheduled for January 10 implies a violation not only of the Venezuelan Constitution, but also of the Inter-American Democratic Charter, Articles 3 and 4
Addressing OAS's Secretary General José Miguel Insulza, MUD's Executive Secretary Ramón Guillermo Aveledo said that in addition to breaching the provisions set out in the Venezuelan Constitution, Chávez's no-show at his inauguration ceremony scheduled for January 10 runs counter to Articles 3 and 4 of the Inter-American Democratic Charter.
Aveledo noted that all possible solutions to any political issues are listed in the Constitution. He stressed that violating the provisions set forth therein implies a disruption of the constitutional and democratic order.

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
