Hello, I'm Sue Montgomery with the BBC news.

The electoral authorities in Venezuela have confirmed that the opposition alliance won a two-thirds majority in parliament in Sundays election. The super majority gives the Democratic Unity coalition extensive powers to challenge the Socialist President Nicolas Maduro. These include the ability to initiate a referendum on whether to revoke Mr. Maduro's mandate. It is said its first priority will be to secure the release of jailed opposition leaders and address Venezuela's deep economic crisis. Jesús Torrealba is the coalition secretary general. “At this point, we have to make a public appeal to the national government. We urge it to take emergency measures in the economic and social agenda. The country has severe problems in terms of food shortages.”

您好,苏.蒙哥马利为您报道BBC新闻。

委内瑞拉选举机关证实在周天的选举中反对党联盟赢得了议会三分之二的选票。这巨大的优势赋予民主团结联盟极大的权力挑战社会主义党总统尼古拉斯.马杜罗,甚至能发起投票决定是否推翻马杜罗的统治。不过他们的首要任务是释放狱中的反对党领导和解决委内瑞拉的严重经济危机。反对党联盟的秘书长赫苏斯.托雷亚瓦尔称,“此次此刻,我们必须向国家政府公开呼吁,采用紧急措施解决我们的经济和社会问题。我们国家现在面临着严重的食物短缺问题。”
