"We are evaluating all our policy options (as) to what we can do to create a change of conditions, where either (Venezuelan President Nicolas) Maduro decides he does not have a future and wants to leave on his own accord, or we can return the government processes back to the constitution", the department said in a statement.

"For those who preach violence, to the fascists, to those who wage an economic war against people. justice will come to them", Rodriguez told the new assembly inside the legislative palace in Caracas.

One of the Venezuelan opposition leaders arrested earlier this week has been freed, it has emerged. "We shall start to act as of tomorrow".

A judge from Venezuela's alternative top court took shelter on Thursday at the Chilean Embassy in Caracas, which already hosts four his colleagues and an opposition leader, the Chilean foreign minister said.

Opposition lawmakers, who are in the majority in the National Assembly, say they will not recognize "the fraudulent and illegitimate" Constituent Assembly.

"I feel deeply the wounds of each one of you", Maduro said addressing a small group of injured national guardsmen scarred with burns, on crutches and wearing neck braces.

Amid the rising tensions, an increasing number of foreign governments have sided with the opposition, refusing to recognize the constitutional assembly and further isolating Maduro's government.

Despite months of violent protests and worldwide condemnation, Maduro insists it is the solution to a drawn-out economic and political crisis gripping Venezuela.

The United States will not recognize the National Constituent Assembly, State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement Thursday, adding that the election lacked credible worldwide observation.

Maduro and the election council denied the accusation.

In a continuing show of defiance, Ortega Diaz filed papers Thursday seeking a court order to block installation of the new assembly.

The 545-member assembly - whose members include Maduro's wife and son - will have sweeping powers to dissolve the opposition-majority congress, pass laws and write a new constitution. The request, filed to a lower court in an apparent attempt to circumvent the government-stacked Supreme Court, was dismissed Friday on procedural grounds.

She also ordered prosecutors to investigate the allegations of election tampering raised by Antonio Mugica, the head of the voting technology firm Smartmatic. The company that provides the country's voting machines said the government's claim that 8.1 million votes were cast in the poll overestimated the tally by least 1 million.
