He specified that “the process that country was going through was within the constitutional framework and institutionality. Thus, nobody could criticize it or rule it out.”

This way, the Parliament took distance from the Government coalition Nueva Mayoria in Chile, the Foreign Ministry of which said in an official press release that what had happened Sunday in Venezuela had been a ‘legitimate decision’ that had increased the existing division in the country.

The PCCh president explained that ‘the external pressure, especially from the United States, and the destabilizing actions by the political right seek to avoid this process, this opportunity, following the same method applied in Chile.’

He recalled that just after the Bolivarian process with Hugo Chavez began, the right sought overthrowing that Government.
