Guaido: Minority Segment and Almost-Inevitable Landslide

guaido: He is recognized as the legitimate ruler of Venezuela by the U.S. and dozens of its allies, but that's based on his status as head of congress, which he is about to lose, according to The Japan Times. Guaido and his allies are boycotting the election, citing the absence of international monitors, while a minority segment of the opposition is taking part. His almost-inevitable landslide will cement his grip on the last major institution in the country that has democratic legitimacy. ; A win for Maduro will further weaken the position of opposition leader Juan Guaido. Turnout is expected to be between 25% and 36%, according to Venezuelan pollsters. Fewer people will turn out this time because the election is not perceived as credible, said Luis Vicente Leon, director of Caracas firm Datanalisis. In the last congressional vote held in 2015, participation was 76%. Polls are open from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., with results expected Sunday evening. ( As reported in the news.
