The lawmaker added that the National Assembly had begun working in a state of emergency due to the complete destruction of Venezuela's constitutional framework after Maduro’s inauguration. Moreover, the legislature would represent the country before the international community, the opposition figure pointed out.
On Thursday, Maduro was sworn in for his second presidential term, which will last through 2025, after winning the May presidential election. The move was criticized by the United States, the Lima Group and the Organization of American States, which refused to recognize Maduro's presidential powers.
On Friday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo discussed the situation in Venezuela during a phone call with Guaido.
The National Assembly has practically been excluded from the political decision-making in Venezuela with Maduro convening the National Constituent Assembly, which is under the control of the government.
