Nationwide strike planned in Venezuela

Opposition leaders in Venezuela have called on workers to stay at home on Wednesday and Thursday as part of a nationwide strike.

It is the latest protest against President Nicolás Maduro’s plans to convene a constituent assembly.

Elections to choose the members of the assembly will be held on Sunday despite calls by international leaders and the opposition to cancel them.

Critics say the assembly is a ploy by the president to expand his powers.
