Whilst a nationwide power blackout continues, Acting President Juan Guaidó calls for protests in the capital of Venezuela.
A nationwide power blackout enters its second day in Venezuela.

Venezuelan National Assembly-declared Acting President Juan Guaidó stated that "state corruption and mismanagement (...) have left the electrical grid in shambles".
Venezuelan National Assembly-declared interim President Juan Guaidó defies Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro's threats and returns to Venezuela where he is received by tens of thousands of people in Caracas.

Venezuela's interim President Juan Guaidó says he will not rule out seeking the help of the United States military to remove Nicolás Maduro from power.
