Chapter Summary

The Congress of Ocana, convoked by Bolivar, with a view to modify the constitution in favour of his arbitrary power, was opened on 2 March 1828 by an elaborate address, insisting on the necessity of new privileges for the executive. Violent factions disturbing the Republic in 1829, in a new appeal to the citizens, Bolivar invited them to frankly express their wishes as to the modifications to be introduced into the constitution. An assembly of notables at Caracas answered by denouncing his ambition, laying bare the weakness of his administration, declaring the separation of Venezuela from Colombia, and placing Paez at the head of that Republic. Towards the end of March 1830, he advanced at the head of 8,000 men, took Caracuta, which had revolted, and then turned upon the province of Maracaibo, where Paez awaited him with 12,000 men, in a strong position.
