Nicolás Maduro
Peaceful protests almost always work better than violent ones - even against repressive governments.
¿Puede un nuevo año y una nueva estrategia ayudar a la coalición opositora venezolana, MUD, a resolver diferencias internas?
The end of democracy in Venezuela was predictable, but it was still shocking in a number of ways.
A pro-Chávez movement against Venezuela's Nicolás Maduro is getting more organized.
Major demonstrations could pressure the country's elections board to allow a recall vote. But challenges to the opposition are significant.
Maduro’s ability to stack the courts may help him survive, despite economic chaos and his tumbling popularity.
The opposition has a chance to gain momentum in December 6 parliamentary elections, but the game is rigged against them.

The release of three prominent opponents offers little sign that President Nicolás Maduro is softening his tone ahead of parliamentary elections on December 6.

This week’s likely top stories: The Summit of the Americas commences in Panama; petition criticizes U.S. action against Venezuela; Argentine Central Bank inspects Citibank; TSJ initiates missiles trial in Bolivia; Canada and Venezuela discuss investment in Venezuelan oil.

If Venezuela’s Latin American neighbors refuse to call for an end to repression and Ledezma’s release, they should at least make clear that barring opposition candidates and parties from the parliamentary elections would be unacceptable.
