The Venezuelan Supreme Court will reverse the decision that annulled the country’s congress, led by the opposition party.
Socialist President Maduro faced criticism and protests over the decision, as his own popularity tanks in the midst of a severe economic crisis that has seen Venezuelans cross the border to purchase food.
The annulment of congress saw Peru withdraw its ambassador to the country, and other American states, such as Mexico, calling on the government to repeal the decision, and threatening further action should the decision not be reversed.
Maduro has faced calls in recent years to resign, with opposition members organizing a recall vote. That vote was embroiled in conflict, with both sides claiming fraud by the other.
