Parliamentary elections were held in Venezuela on 6 December 2020.[b] Aside from the 167 deputies of the National Assembly who are eligible to be re-elected, the new National Electoral Council president announced that the assembly would increase by 93 seats, for a total of 277 deputies to be elected.[6]

Many saw the election was unfair saying that there were many illegal votes and it was rigged.[7]
