Venezuela: Nicolas Maduro Takes Office Amid Popular Support

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is sworn-in Thursday despite reiterated economic and diplomatic attacks by the United States and its right-wing allies in the region, gathered in the Lima Group. Maduro won the presidential elections in May 2018, with 67 percent of votes. A part of the Venezuelan opposition has insisted in calling the May elections fraudulent despite their decision to boycott. The opposition candidate Henry Flacon, who came in second, got 21% of the vote.
