As the new left in Latin America tries to distance itself from Maduro; listen to podcast


In recent years, the left has returned to power in a number of Latin American countries, from Argentina to Mexico, through Chile, Bolivia and Peru. In Colombia and Brazil, which have elections this year, leftist candidates lead the polls for president — Gustavo Petro in the neighboring country, and Lula here.

As they come to power or approach it, these leaders have been questioned about Venezuela – and some have shown signs of moving away from the regime led by Nicolás Maduro.

The country is experiencing a humanitarian crisis and an advance of authoritarianism. And both the president-elect of Chile, Gabriel Boric, and the Peruvian president, Pedro Castillo, have already made public statements distancing themselves from Chavismo.

In this Friday’s episode (4), Café da Manhã talks with journalist and political commentator Diogo Schelp about the left wave in Latin America and how old and new leaders relate to Venezuela.
