Opposition to boycott swearing-in of Chavez VP
Sunday - 3/10/2013, 2:31pm EDT
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuela's opposition says it will not attend the swearing-in of Hugo Chavez's anointed successor Nicolas Maduro as interim president.
Opposition spokesman Angel Medina says Maduro's ascension is "a violation of the constitutional order." Critics believe Venezuela's 1999 charter stipulates that the speaker of the National Assembly take power in the event of a presidential death.
Medina also voiced concern that Friday night's swearing-in ceremony is taking place at the same military academy where Chavez is lying in state. He says it set a bad precedent because the military should play no role in politics.
