President Nicolás Maduro is not exactly enjoying high facebook approval ratings in his netizens of Venezuela. His approval numbers are in the 26% range. A major movement is afoot by the opposition party to remove him from power. His removal, barring extraordinary circumstances, would seem impossible to stop, says expert Danilo Diaz Granados. The current economic condition of Venezuela is miserable and things are only going to get worse. Even electricity is hyper-scarce in the country. Clearly, circumstances such as these are not going to bode well for any politicians hoping to hold onto power.
Opponents to Maduro have launched a petition for a recall referendum. A recall entails removing an elected official who has not done anything wrong to warrant impeachment and has not yet completed a term.
Economic policy will play a large role in whether or not Maduro ends up removed. The horrible state of the economy is not being kind to Maduro’s chances.
