The leader of the Venezuelan opposition, Juan Guaydo, has no right to decide on the introduction of a state of emergency in the republic, said deputy MP from the LDPR faction, member of the Committee on International Affairs Anton Morozov, on Duma TV.
“He (Guaydo. – Ed.) In its current status can not take any legitimate actions that have the exclusive right to take the head of state, including declaring a state of emergency is also not within his competence,” said Anton Morozov.
The deputy stressed that “only the head of state can address the military in the event of external aggression, and the use of the military for internal fights is prohibited in any normal country.”
“I think this (plans to introduce a state of emergency. – approx. Ed.) Is due to the fact that there is a certain slippage of this coup in Venezuela (…) and they (the USA – approx. Ed.) Have already used the last possible options for in order to seat Guaydo in the presidency. But, apparently, the military remain loyal, mass protest actions did not work, Maduro has no less supporters, therefore, most likely, Maduro will remain in power, ”added Anton Morozov.
Earlier, the publication El Nacional reported: the leader of the Venezuelan opposition, Juan Guaydo, said that on Monday, March 11, he would appeal to the National Assembly to introduce a state of emergency in the country because of a massive power outage.
Later, RIA Novosti reported that the Venezuelan parliament plans to consider this issue.
