Opposition deputy: top court ruling is "a mess"

Alfonso Marquina said the decision issued by the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) is political rather than legal because "it is meant to give a veneer of legality to the usurpation of authority that will take hold in Venezuela as of tomorrow (January 11)"

Deputy Alfonso Marquina (opposition party UNT – Sucre municipality) described as "a mess" the ruling of the Supreme Tribunal of Court (TSJ) that Hugo Chávez, as a reelected president, does not need to take oath again, thus endorsing the administrative continuity of his government.

His comment came in response to the presence of Latin American and Caribbean foreign ministers and leaders to attend a meeting of oil alliance Petrocaribe and the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA). According to Marquina, such foreign officials and leaders are not aware of the real situation facing Venezuela.

"Beyond any doubt, the foreign ministers who are in the country have not read this mess, this decision of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) that disregards the Constitution. Therefore, they have little to say," Marquina said during a press conference offered by the parliamentary bloc of the opposition alliance MUD.

Alfonso Marquina said the decision issued by the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) is political rather than legal because "it is meant to give a veneer of legality to the usurpation of authority that will take hold in Venezuela as of tomorrow (January 11)."

"The ruling is full of contradictions and based on assumptions," he said.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
