Blinken: Maduro's government 'skewed' regional election result in its favor
- United States
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken accused Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government of holding flawed regional elections on Sunday that "skewed the process" to pre-determine the result in his party's favor.
After Maduro's Socialist party scored a sweeping win in the elections, Blinken said in a statement that Washington would maintain support for opposition leader Juan Guaido and it would continue working with international partners to use "diplomatic and economic tools" to pressure Maduro's government.
