Venezuela should be a rich country; in the 1990s, it was a South American powerhouse with the world's largest supply of crude oil. And yet, over years of crashing oil prices and government overspending, the country and its economy is falling apart. Although the current President, Maduro, has enacted price controls and raised the minimum wage in order to provide relief for the poor, because of rampant inflation, these measures are mostly worthless. In order for Venezuela to address the social problems facing the country though, the government must become stable and dependable. A reality which doesn't seem possible given the current chaos between Maduro and the National Assembly.

At the end this April 2018, the presidential election in Venezuela is coming. On the other hand, unclear problem is the constitutions of Venezuela will begin dictating six-year presidential term at 2019. It is unclear who from the fragmented opposition will stand against Maduro. He also announced that the country's main opposition parties would be banned taking part in elections. That is why, "a lot of people very worried", including members of the opposition who have been calling for "fair, transparent and internationally supervised elections which they believe could not take place before the end of the year" How do you also think that is a political change will become in Venezuela from this April election?
