The surprising results of the snap Venezuelan presidential election and the violence that followed provide one theme for this week's edition of Latin Pulse. The program includes two interviews reacting to the outcome, including a former U.S. ambassador to Venezuela. The program also looks at the issues facing Venezuela's new president. The other central theme of the program is a look forward at this weekend's elections in Paraguay, which includes the comeback of that country's powerful Colorado Party. The news segment of the program reviews the details of the recently unveiled bipartisan immigration reform proposal in the United States Senate.
The program includes in-depth interviews with:
Charles Shapiro of the Institute of the Americas
Dr. Christopher Sabatini of the Americas Society/Council of the Americas; and
Dr. Peter Lambert of the University of Bath.
