Addis Ababa, January 10, 2019 (FBC) – Nicolás Maduro has been sworn in for a second term as Venezuela’s president.

The May 2018 polls were marred by an opposition boycott and vote-rigging claims.

The US, EU, and 13 countries in the Americas said last week that they would not recognise Mr Maduro’s presidency.

The socialist leader, 56, has dismissed talk of foul play, saying opponents “must leave us alone to govern”.

Mr Maduro was first elected in 2013, succeeding Hugo Chavez who died of cancer after governing for 14 years.
