Venezuela's Supreme Court thrust that country back into the limelight this week, deciding there will be no appeal to the close election results of spring's controversial elections. This week, Latin Pulse uses that decision to return to Venezuelan politics. The program delves into voter fraud and coercion in Venezuela. The program also looks at the aftereffects of the Edward Snowden affair and what it has meant to the evolving diplomatic context in Latin America. The program tracks how the Obama administration's approach to Snowden has affected relations with more than Venezuela, but also Bolivia, Nicaragua and Ecuador.
The program includes in-depth interviews with:
Michael McCarthy of Johns Hopkins University; and
Peter Hakim of the Inter-American Dialogue.
Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell
