The Venezuelan Parliament has announced it will declare Nicolas Maduro unfit to do his job as president of Venezuela in the upcoming days. 

Julio Borges, president of the Parliament said that in the next days, the legislature will declare the resignation of President Nicolás Maduro, and assured that, as we know, this will clearly help out the country to have a regular election process soon.

"With the greatest oil riches in the world, Venezuela's people seek food in rubbish ... the elderly faint in lines to seek food and medicines. It's as if we are victims of a curse," he said in a speech.

"What to do faced with a government gone from authoritarianism to dictatorship? Fight, fearlessly and in every space, to save the constitution, Venezuela and the right to vote," Borges added, calling for fresh elections for mayors, governors, president and legislators.

According to Peru21, Borges added that it is clear that Maduro left the office when he ignored the Constitution. hee also stated that during this new legislative period the Assembly will hold sessions with the communities, in the "hospitals" and in the streets and that will also accompany the Venezuelan people in "their suffering."

Maduro has been the 65th President of Venezuela since 2013. He also served under President Hugo Chávez as Minister of Foreign Affairs from 2006 to 2013 and as Vice President of Venezuela from 2012 to 2013.

Given opponents' failure to hold a referendum in 2016 after government-leaning courts ruled a signature drive was fraudulent, it's unclear how they plan to force Maduro's hand.
