Guaidó also called for a series of strikes to force President Nicolás Maduro to relinquish power.

Guaidó in January declared himself Venezuela’s interim leader, and he has been recognised by more than 50 countries, but Maduro who is backed by Russia, China and the leaders of Venezuela’s military, has refused to cede power.
