Americas Society and Council of the Americas is hosting a panel discussion on Venezuela’s upcoming December 6 legislative elections. Amid high inflation, shortages of basic goods, high rates of crime and violence, and low international oil prices, opinion polls suggest that the opposition coalition is poised to take control of the National Assembly. Experts will discuss likely political scenarios and probable economic outlooks.
