In 2024, Nicolás Maduro, the president of Venezuela, and his supporters have had to contend with several obstacles, such as a presidential election, warrants for the arrest of journalists and human rights advocates, attacks on opponents, and international censure.

The government has demonstrated its willingness to push the boundaries of the accord by undermining the opposition’s presidential primary, apprehending several alleged or real enemies, and falsely accusing opposition members of being hate-spewing criminals.

Venezuelan Presidential Election

The most significant test occurred on Friday when María Corina Machado’s presidential campaign was thwarted by Venezuela’s highest court, which supports Maduro’s administration, by maintaining an administrative ruling that forbids her from seeking public office for a period of fifteen years.

Although Maduro’s top negotiator and head of the nation’s National Assembly, Jorge Rodríguez, rejected the challenge, Machado has not been disadvantaged by the ban thus far.

Preceding the most recent presidential election, which saw Maduro re-elected, the government witnessed similar conflicts. Several years passed until Maduro and the Unitary Platform, the opposition group supported by the United States, seemed to have finally agreed in October to work on balancing the electoral landscape for 2024.

A few days later, the negotiating bloc of the opposition had its primary election, which Machado won with over 90% of the vote.

In response to the court ruling on Friday, the United States withdrew the relief it had previously granted in October to Compañía General de Minería de Venezuela, C.A., or Minerven, the state-owned mining company in Venezuela. Maduro has until April to comply with the terms of the electoral agreement to retain the additional relief.
