Who is the rightful president of Venezuela, on what grounds, and how can it be interpreted so differently by different countries and institutions?

Nicolas Maduro won the presidential election in Venezuela, but his victory is disputed by the opposition. Not long after, the European Union backed Juan Guaido, head of the opposition-majority in the National Assembly. He then went ahead to call himself the president of Venezuela, yet the Venezuelan Supreme Court claimed Maduro was still the rightful president. It has even went so far that a British court has ruled that Venezuela’s gold reserves belong to Guaido’s administration rather than to Maduro’s.

But who is right and why? What political mechanisms speak for or against Maduro and Guaido? Who is the legitimate president from a constitutional perspective?

DOJ Narco Terrorism Charges Against Venezuelan President Maduro, Diosdado Cabello, a former speaker of the National, the second most powerful political figure in Venezuela, and Vladimir Padrino Lopez, minister of defense.

Feds charge Venezuelan President Maduro, other top officials with narco-terrorism

BY ANTONIO MARIA DELGADO AND

JAY WEAVER

MARCH 26, 2020 09:40 AM . BY EMILY MICHOT

In a stunning announcement amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Justice Department plans to announce Thursday that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and other government officials have been charged with turning Venezuela into a narco-state by collaborating with a leftist Colombian guerrilla group that exported tons of cocaine to the United States.

An indictment, to be unveiled at a “virtual” news conference in Washington, D.C., accuses Maduro and other top officials in his socialist regime of conspiring with the U.S.-designated terrorist group known as the FARC so that Venezuela could be used for narcotics shipments to finance a long-running civil war against the Colombian government.

Charged along with Maduro are Diosdado Cabello, a former speaker of the National Assembly who is considered the second most powerful political figure in Venezuela, and Vladimir Padrino Lopez, the country’s minister of defense. All three Venezuelan officials face allegations of narco-terrorism, drug trafficking and weapons violations in a scheme initiated in the mid-2000s that was meant to help the Colombian rebel group while enriching themselves with cocaine-tainted bribes, according to federal authorities.

Maduro’s indictment marks the second time that the U.S. government has brought criminal charges against a foreign head of state. The last time was in 1989, when federal prosecutors in Miami indicted Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega on drug-trafficking charges. and U.S. military forces seized him late that year. Noriega was convicted at trial, imprisoned in the Miami area and died in 2017.
