Delcy Rodríguez (Delcy Eloína Rodríguez Gómez) (18 May 1969) is a Venezuelan politician serving as the country’s vice president since 2018. She also served as Venezuela’s Minister of Popular Power for Communication and Information from 2013 to 2014, Minister of Foreign Affairs from 2014 to 2017, and President of the Venezuelan Constituent Assembly from August 4, 2017, to June 14, 2018.

Rodríguez is the daughter of Jorge Antonio Rodríguez, the Socialist League’s founder. Jorge Jess Rodríguez, her brother, was the mayor of Caracas and later served as vice president.

During the Chavez administration, Rodríguez held a number of positions. In 2003, she was the Director of International Affairs in the Ministry of Energy and Mines, and in 2005, she was the Vice-Minister for European Affairs. In 2006, she served as Minister of Presidential Affairs.

She studied labor law in Paris, France, taught at UCV, and was a member of the Venezuelan Association of Labor Lawyers, according to a profile published in the newspaper Tal Cual.

Since 2016, Rodriguez has been a staunch defender of Venezuelan government domestic policies, despite calls from the Organization of American States Secretary-General, Luis Almagro, to suspend Venezuelan membership for violating the OAS Democratic Charter. Rodriguez then resigned on June 21, 2017, to run for the Constituent National Assembly.

Rodríguez was named Vice President of Venezuela by President Maduro on June 14, 2018, succeeding Tareck El Aissami. She also became the head official of Venezuela’s intelligence agency, the Bolivarian Intelligence Service (SEBIN), which is linked to the vice presidency.

Rodríguez was in a relationship with Alfredo José Anzola, Smartmatic co-founder, prior to his death in a plane crash in April 2008.
