Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro appeared at the National Assembly (AN) on Tuesday to introduce the government report for 2012.
The session was led by Congress Speaker Diosdado Cabello. The president of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ), Luisa Estella Morales; Adelina González, the president of the Repubilcan Moral Council, and the president of the National Electoral Council, Tibisay Lucena, attended the event.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
