"The deputies from the state of Amazonas have asked to resign as members of the National Assembly. Hopefully, this week the government will fulfill its obligations and next week we will meet to assess [the situation]," Calzadilla said.
In return, the Supreme Court is reportedly supposed to repeal its decision on the illegitimacy of the National Assembly.
Relations of President Nicolas Maduro and the parliament have been strained since the election of a new opposition-controlled parliament in January, as the opposition was not in favor of the current leader. In particular, it considered the issue of Maduro's impeachment, as well as tried to introduce an amendment to reduce the term of the president from six to four years.
Public support for Maduro has dropped to record low levels after falling oil prices strained Venezuela’s budget and sparked high inflation and shortages of goods.
