Tlazazalca is a small town in the northern region of Michoacan, Mexico in an area first settled by ancient Nahuatl tribes in the early 14th Century.



The town was officially established in 1545 by the Franciscan priest John of Saint Michael (Spanish: Juan de San Miguel) who accompanied the army of Nuño de Guzman during the conquest of the region. Subsequently, Franciscan priests proceeded to baptize the Native Purepecha and Chichimeca populations that inhabited the area. In addition to the city center, the Spanish Conquistadors also established within the jurisdiction of Tlazazalca an "Indian Republic" (Spanish: Republica de Indios) whose role was to govern directly the Native populations subjected to Spanish authority.

The town and surrounding areas were administered by the Parish of Saint Mark the Archangel (Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel) whose name was chosen in honor of the town's Franciscan founder. Tlazazalca served as a major governing center in Michoacan until it was later subordinated to Zamora and Valladolid (Morelia).

This is the list of members elected in the 2017 Constituent National Assembly of Venezuela following the 30 July 2017 elections. The first session of the assembly began on 4 August 2017 in the Oval Room of the Palacio Federal Legislativo. The Democratic Unity Roundtable—the opposition to the incumbent ruling party—also boycotted the election claiming that the Constituent Assembly was "a trick to keep [the incumbent ruling party] in power." Since the opposition did not participate in the election, the incumbent Great Patriotic Pole, dominated by the United Socialist Party of Venezuela, won almost all seats in the assembly by default.
