Venezuela: Maduro casts his vote in Constituent Assembly election

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro cast his vote in Caracas, Sunday, as polls opened for voters to cast their ballots to elect a 545-seat Constituent Assembly which will have the power to draft a new constitution. After he cast his vote, Maduro addressed his supporters saying, «Emperor Donald Trump wanted to ban the people from exercising their right to vote,» before he added, «I said, it rains... Еще, thunder or lightning, there will be elections on 30 of July, and there will be a Constituent Assembly.» The election comes after months of protests, often with violent clashes ensuing, demanding early general elections opposing President Maduro's constituent assembly plans and demonstrating against the economic crisis in Venezuela.
