Fight in parliament - level 1

Fight in parliament - level 1

07-05-2013 14:00

Venezuelan politicians fought. The fight was between the opposition and the government.

There was a president named Hugo Chavez in Venezuela but he died. People then chose a new president. He won only by 1.49%. The opposition didn't accept him. So the government told them not to speak in the parliament. Then the fighting started.

We don't know who started it. Many people were injured. There are problems in the country too, not only in the parliament. The situation in Venezuela is not good after the death of Hugo Chavez.

Interesting words: fought (fight in the past), accept (say OK to something).
