Venezuela's Guaido Challenges President Nicolas Maduro And Declares Himself President
Juan Guaido was an unknown figure in Venezuelan politics but has grown popular recently.
According to Reuters, Guaido assumed the presidency of the opposition-controlled congress.
Now Guaido is challenging socialist President Nicolas Maduro and declaring himself interim president.
Guiado has won support from the opposition’s upper-class and many working-class people.
In order to achieve new elections, Guaido still needs the support of the armed forces.
