As explained by a post at, Venezuelan opposition deputy leader Alfonso Marquina threw a punch to ruling party deputy leader Henry Ventura, after the two went into exchange of unfriendly words.

Earlier, Alfonso Marquina stood up from his seat and approached the Executive and Policy AN committee along with two other opposition politicians, and apparently protesting the presence of noisy pro-administration supports in the audience.

Out of the blue, Henry Ventura came in and tried to remove Marquina and his companions from in front of the podium, but the two eventually had a heated argument, until Marquina gave in the first blow and Ventura pushed him down the stairs. The crowd screamed louder.

Fellow politicians rushed in and some of them joined the pushing; while security officials tried to separate them but were not able to stop the collision at once.

Moments later, the Venezuelan TV cut the live coverage and returned only after the order was restored.
