sao paulo - The South American Economic Cooperation Mercosur has suspended Venezuela as a member on Saturday.
In a statement, Mercosur said that Venezuela had to meet certain conditions before the weather could become active within the trading block.
Mercosur demands President Nicolás Maduro, among other things, to restore democracy, release political prisoners and dismantle the controversial 'constitutional assembly'.
Maduro had chosen a 'constitutional assembly' last Sunday to change the rules of the country. The opposition boycotted the ballot box. Maduro wants to finish according to opposition from parliament and opponents.
