Venezuela is undergoing a new round of political crisis. They brought to him the decision of the National electoral Council (CNE) to postpone indefinitely the second stage of preparation for the referendum on early termination of powers of the President. It was to be held from 26 to 28 October, and in the course of his political opponents, Maduro had to collect 4 million signatures.

The President has promised to prevent a “parliamentary coup” and to do everything possible for peace in Venezuela.
