Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro has announced the creation of a new popular assembly with the ability to re-write the constitution, Al Jazeera reports.

Maduro has triggered an article of the constitution that creates a super-body known as a "constituent assembly".

It can dissolve public powers and call general elections, echoing a previous assembly created by his predecessor Hugo Chavez in 1999 soon after he won office.

"I convoke the original constituent power to achieve the peace needed by the Republic, defeat the fascist coup, and let the sovereign people impose peace, harmony and true national dialogue," Maduro told red-shirted supporters.
