Venezuela’s Ex-Foreign Minister Sworn In to Head New Assembly

CARACAS — Venezuela’s former foreign minister Delcy Rodriguez was on Friday sworn in as president of a new Constituent Assembly, which was installed by the government and authorized to expand the powers of leftist President Nicolas Maduro.

Governments from Spain to Canada to Argentina have spoken out against the assembly and the United States imposed sanctions on OPEC member Venezuela, which is grappling with a political and economic crisis.
