The president of the new Venezuelan Constituent Assembly, Delcy Rodriguez (L), sitting next to the assembly's Second Vice-President Isaias Rodriguez, presides the first session of the controversial loyalist body, in Caracas on August 5, 2017.
Venezuela's contested new assembly fired the country's dissident chief prosecutor Ortega, one of President Nicolas Maduro's most vocal critics, on Saturday in a move sure to provoke greater international criticism. The body, which made the sacking its first order of business, also said it planned to operate as Venezuela's supreme power for up to two years.
