Former Venezuela interim leader to run in primary:


Venezuelan opposition party Popular Will said Tuesday that Juan Guaidó, once the most visible global face of the country’s opposition, will be its candidate in an October presidenti­al primary. Guaidó, a 39-year-old industrial engineer, headed an interim government beginning in January 2019, before being replaced as head of the opposition legislatur­e at the end of 2022. Though Guaidó was recognized as Venezuela’s rightful leader by many Western countries that consider President Nicolás Maduro’s 2018 reelection to be fraudulent, Maduro remains in office and is enjoying loosened U.S. sanctions and renewed relations with some neighbors.
