President Maduro to start new term as Venezuela isolation growsLeaders from the ruling Socialist Party have disavowed criticism of Maduro's inauguration, which will keep him at the helm of the OPEC member until 2025, and called for rallies in his support. Opposition leaders, however, have portrayed the inauguration as the moment at which Maduro will be internationally branded a dictator following a widely boycotted 2018 election that many foreign governments described as a farce. "They've tried to turn a constitutional swearing-in ceremony into a world war," Maduro said during a news conference on Wednesday.
