Twitter Suspends Account of Venezuela’s New National Assembly

The European Union previously criticised the Venezuelan parliamentary elections, while the US and countries of the Lima Group refused to recognise the outcome of the vote, citing alleged electoral violations.

Twitter has frozen the account of Venezuela’s new National Assembly, @LaNuevaAsamblea.

“Twitter suspends accounts which violate the Twitter Rules”, the company said on the @LaNuevaAsamblea page, which is currently empty.

The new parliament was elected in December 2020 with over 91 percent of votes cast for the socialist Simon Bolivar Great Patriotic Pole, bringing the party 253 of the 277 seats available.
