    Venezuela in conflict of powers: Maduro took office, but Guaidó shows as president while Venezuelans protest

    Juan Guaidó will use the Constitution to assume as Venezuelan president after declaring Nicolás Maduro's usurpation of the charge

The illegitimacy of the president is discussed globally and Juan Guaidó is recognized as interim president of the Republic.
