The decision was announced a day after police found a kilo of cocaine in a vehicle which had a copy of license plates belonging to CD Deputy Juan Poveda. Poveda confirmed that the plates has been given to a supporter of his campaign.
In making the decision to remove the plates from all his colleagues, National Assembly President Rubén De León said that the institution "does not tolerate any criminal act."
He warned members that the plates were only for the use of them and their families, and are not transferable.
He requested the members of all parties deliver the registration numbers of the vehicle using these plates. He also said the matter involving Poveda will be investigated.
"Issuing a duplicate plate is illegal and we will conduct an investigation to determine those responsible," he said.
De León will also have a meeting with President Juan Carlos Varela about this topic today at 5 p.m. Last month an employee of the National Assembly was charged with money laundering after he was captured in a vehicle containing $854,000.
