After being sworn in as interim president this Wednesday, the head of Venezuela’s National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, spoke about the transition planned to call for elections in 30 days, as outlined by the country’s Constitution.
Guaidó compared the current high tension situation in Venezuela with the way dictatorships in Latin America ended, and added that he would favor offering amnesty to Nicolás Maduro in exchange for him leaving power.
He was mayor of San Antonio and Secretary of Housing and Development when Barack Obama was president. Now, Castro has announced he will be running for office himself. He says Trump is taking the country backwards and assures the public that he is capable of beating him in 2020.
