Five days after the nation voted, the elected members of Venezuela's National Constituent Assembly, ANC, have taken their seats. To celebrate their swearing-in, thousands of supporters joined a march to the parliament building in Caracas.
As the 545 elected members entered the Federal Legislative Palace in the capital, supporters joined them holding paintings of independence hero Simon Bolivar and former president Hugo Chavez, leader of the Bolivarian Revolution.
Chavez's successor, Nicolas Maduro, tweeted that nothing could stop the people from creating a new history and pledged that they would be victorious.
During the ceremony, the former Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez was unanimously elected as president of the body.
Former Venezuelan vice presidents Aristobulo Isturiz and Isaias Rodriguez were elected as first and second vice presidents of the body respectively.
"The same bourgeoisie that opposed Chavez's first National Constituent Assembly are today trying to silence the voices of the people in support of this one," Rodriguez said. "The National Constituent Assembly breaks with the dark past of the fascist right."
