Venezuela's isolated Maduro to begin new term with economy in tattersVenezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Thursday begins a new term that critics dismiss as illegitimate, with the economy in free fall and the country more isolated than ever. The 56-year-old leader will be sworn in at 1400 GMT by the Supreme Court rather than the sidelined, opposition-controlled parliament. As the swearing-in gets under way, the OAS in Washington is to hold a special session on Venezuela.
