Analysts believe that the Maduro government has the ability to resist pressure, and in the medium and long term, the Venezuelan struggle between the opposition and the opposition will remain fierce, and the domestic affairs of the Venezuelan will become increasingly complicated under the intervention of the United States.
On May 1 this year, Venezuelan President Maduro announced the initiation of a constitution-making process to re-enact the national constitution in order to maintain national peace, promote domestic dialogue, and resolve the current political crisis.
Analysts believe that the Maduro government’s efforts to promote constitutionalism are to gradually take back the parliament controlled by the opposition coalition and regain control of the legislative power so as to occupy a favorable position in the battle between the opposition and the opposition.
Recently, the opposition coalition was appointed to completely bypass the electoral organs in the ancient referendum. According to the statistics of the opposition party, more than 7 million voters participated in and voted against the antique constitutional assembly elections, accounting for about all the expenses of the voters.

In fact, the U.S. presidential election also issued an ultimatum to Venezuela, stating that if Venezuela’s representative is elected at the Antique Constituent Assembly on July 30, the United States will take tough and rapid economic measures against Venezuela.
In order to maintain domestic peace and stability, in recent months, the Maduro government has given top priority to antiques that guarantee the success of the Constitutional Assembly.
Maduro has assigned a number of important cabinet members to resign to public office to stand for election to the Constituent Assembly, and has actively mobilized more than 7 million members of the ruling party across the country to participate in elections and voting.
The Opposition Coalition refuses to recognize and participate in the Constituent Assembly, and does not recommend any candidates to participate. It only escalates protests to resist, so if the election is successful, the ruling party should have no suspense.
Venezuela’s National Elections Commission Chairman Lucena said on the 29th that more than 14,500 polling stations elected by the Constituent Assembly have been fully prepared and that all technical and security personnel have been in place.
From the perspective of public opinion, the Maduro government is resilient.
Wang Peng, secretary-general of the Central American and Caribbean Research Center of the Latin American Institute of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, pointed out that only 7 million voters participated in the referendum of the opposition Democratic Party antiques.11 million.
In addition, the opposition party has been conducting antique protests for more than three months. The violence during the protest killed 107 people and injured and arrested thousands.

Manuel Yejepe, a political scientist and professor at the Cuban Institute of Advanced Studies in International Relations, believes that the Venezuelan opposition has escalated demonstrations and demonstrations, which has caused the two parties to lose many opportunities to sit down and negotiate.
The consensus dialogue is a win-win solution, and the Venezuelan people are reluctant to see more bloodshed.
From the perspective of the ruling party’s control of state institutions, the ruling party still firmly controls the Supreme Court and the National Election Commission, which can ensure the legitimacy of the Constituent Assembly and the smooth conduct of elections.
More importantly, the military has recently expressed its allegiance to the Maduro government and will escort the Constituent Assembly elections.
In order to ensure the smooth conduct of the 30th election, the military has stated that it will send more than 230,000 soldiers to each polling station in the country to prevent any acts that disrupt and hinder voting.
Jiang Shixue, director of the Latin American Studies Center of Shanghai University, believes that Maduro still has the support of the military and is unlikely to abandon the constitutional assembly election or step down early.
The opposition has exhausted almost all its tactics and did not pose a deadly threat to Maduro’s government.
Yuan Dongzhen, deputy director of the Institute of Latin American Studies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, pointed out that the ruling party still has serious control over administrative, judicial, and election institutions, and has the support of the lower and middle classes, which can basically ensure that its term of office will expire in January 2019.
