CARACAS, Venezuela — The latest on the political crisis in Venezuela (all times local): 6:05 p.m. Several thousand Venezuelans rallied in central Spain’s capital of Madrid Saturday to show their support for Juan Guaido, the self-proclaimed interim president of Venezuela. Former Caracas mayor Antonio Ledezma, who escaped a Venezuelan prison and fled to Spain in 2017, attended the rally in opposition to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. The gathering coincided with a major rally Guaido held in Venezuela, where tens of thousands of supporters in Caracas demanded that Maduro step down from power. Loyalists of Maduro’s socialist government flooded the streets in a different part Caracas to celebrate 20 years since Hugo Chavez launched the Bolivarian revolution. There was another smaller rally for Guaido in Barcelona, Spain’s second largest city. The number of people born in Venezuela who live in Spain has jumped from 165,000 in 2015 to 255,000 last year, according to Spain’s National Institute of Statistics. ___ 3:20 p.m. Venezuela opposition leader Juan Guaido says he hopes Pope Francis will soon weigh in on the crisis. Italian daily La Stampa asked Guaido in an interview in Caracas what the Vatican or the pope could do to avoid a worsening of Venezuela’s political crisis. The newspaper on Saturday quoted Guaido as replying: We hope to soon hear a pronouncement by the pope. But the Argentine-born pontiff said a few days earlier that although he is terrified there could be a bloodbath in Venezuela, his pastoral role doesn’t let him take sides. Guaido has declared himself interim president as he tries to force President Nicolas Maduro from power. | foreign news, Video news, technology, Business News, us news, World News, weather, news from around the world, White House, political news, Markets, education, politics news, Breaking News, top stories, local news, travel, national news, federal government, financial information, government, Politics, News, U.S & International Breaking News, Investing, entertainment, environment, economy, political opinion
