According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro begins a second term in office, despite international criticism that his reelection last year was illegitimate and an economic crisis fueling a humanitarian emergency. Reuters reports that continued support from the military, a fractured opposition and a relentless crackdown on opposition critics all contribute to Maduro's ability to maintain his grip on power, despite the international outcry. During a news conference on Wednesday, Maduro said, “They’ve tried to turn a constitutional swearing-in ceremony into a world war. But whether there’s rain, thunder or lightning, we’re going to triumph.”
