Venezuela court blocks a defiant opposition

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro speaks during a television program in Caracas, on December 30, 2015Venezuela’s highest court on Wednesday effectively blocked the two-thirds majority that the opposition won in this month’s landmark legislative elections by suspending the inauguration of three incoming lawmakers. “With the strength of the Constitution, with the strength of the law and the strength of the people, the 112 MUD lawmakers will be sworn in,” the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD) coalition declared, in a statement. It was released shortly after the Supreme Court of Justice granted a request from embattled President Nicolas Maduro’s party to stop the three incoming National Assembly members from taking office Tuesday, pending a legal challenge against alleged vote irregularities.
