Conference delivered at Miami Dade College, Florida, United States, February 7, 2019. Rafael Badell Madrid.


On February 05th, 2019, the National Assembly, by direct application of the Constitution, issued the Statute Governing the Transition to Democracy as the exceptional and transitory framework with the force and value of a higher legal rule above internal law regulating the recovery of democracy in Venezuela. In 7 Chapters and 39 Articles, the Statute establishes the ways in which to restore constitutional order and rebuild the institutions, in three phases: (i) cessation of Nicolás MADURO MOROS usurpation of the Presidency of the Republic; (ii) putting in place a Provisional Government until a new President is constitutionally elected; and (iii) holding free elections. The Statute establishes the effects of the usurpation of the Presidency of the Republic, grants the National Assembly special and temporary powers to advance the political and economic transition, determines the re-institutionalization of public authority organizations and defines the powers of the Provisional Government until measures can be implemented for a democratic and universal electoral process in Venezuela to elect the President for the 2019-2025 constitutional term.
