Venezuela Opposition Leader Vows to Win

Venezuela’s opposition leader says he is confident he will be able to force President Nicolas Maduro to step down. Henrique Capriles told the BBC that 80% of the population wanted change and he would be able to collect 4 million signatures and force a recall referendum. “We are having the worst situation in our history,” he said. Oil accounts for most of Venezuela’s export revenues but plummeting prices and economic mismanagement have brought the country to economic collapse. Opposition supporters blame Maduro for Venezuela’s economic crisis and accuse the electoral commission of delaying a referendum that could shorten his stay in power. But Capriles said he believed he could force a referendum to take place. “We have to collect signatures,” he said. “It’s four million people and that is going to be so important that it is going to open the door for the referendum and the people are going to vote and we are going to have a new government in our country. “It looks very difficult to have it, but so important that it is going to be very difficult for Maduro to avoid the referendum.”
