CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuelan opposition politicians say they're preparing to present a case before a regional human rights court to challenge a Supreme Court decision that permits the indefinite postponement of President Hugo Chavez's inauguration.
The case is being prepared by a group of lawyers for the country's opposition coalition. Lawyer and opposition politician Gerardo Blyde says it's not yet clear when the case will be brought before the Costa Rica-based Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
Blyde announced plans for the case during an outdoor gathering of opposition supporters in Caracas where leading Chavez opponents denounced this week's Supreme Court decision.
