Venezuela's parliament tries to lure military into disavowing Maduro

Venezuela's parliament tries to lure military into disavowing MaduroVenezuela’s opposition-controlled but powerless National Assembly stepped up its battle with President Nicolas Maduro on Tuesday by offering an amnesty to anyone from the military who joins it in disavowing the socialist leader. The “amnesty law” would extend also to civilian government officials who collaborate “in the restitution of constitutional order,” parliament said. The row between the legislature and Maduro has intensified since the socialist leader was sworn in last week for a second term of office in the crisis-hit country, after he won snap elections in May that were boycotted by the opposition and dismissed by the United States, European Union and Organization of American States as a fraud.
