Venezuela’s ruling party won at least 18 governorships out of 23 states, according to updated election results published by the National Electoral Council (CNE in Spanish) on Monday. The electoral authority had earlier declared the ruling party victorious in 20 governorship elections. The ruling party saw supporter numbers drop to 3.7 million, according to CNE figures, from some 5.9 million votes in 2017 regional elections. The oil-rich state of Zulia was won by opposition politician Manuel Rosales with 56.1 percent of the vote, who said it was clear that Venezuela’s opposition movement faced challenges. The CNE has yet to announce victors in mayorship races — with the exception of capital Caracas, where the ruling party candidate won.

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela’s regional elections on Sunday were distorted by an uneven playing field, violence and injunctions against opposition leaders, European Union election observers said on Tuesday. But the mere presence of independent international monitors, the first in 15 years to witness a Venezuelan vote, underlined how profoundly President Nicolás Maduro has cemented himself into power in Venezuela since taking office in 2013. After years of suppressing dissent with force and subverting the vestiges of Venezuela’s democratic institutions, Mr. Maduro has perfected a political system where he no longer has much fear of international scrutiny when competing against carefully calibrated opponents, according to analysts and opposition leaders. The government showed that by banning the most prominent and popular opposition leaders from running for office, dividing opposition parties, encouraging voter apathy and keeping a loyal minority dependent on government handouts, it can win elections without resorting to outright fraud — even with minimal popular support.

A worker collects a crude oil sample at an oil well operated by Venezuela's state oil company PDVSA in Morichal, Venezuela, July 28, 2011. The producer group agreed this month to stick to plans to raise oil output by 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) from December. Oil prices rose after Bloomberg News reported that OPEC+ may alter plans to keep boosting production, citing delegates. The combined SPR release could be 100 million to 120 million barrels or even higher, Citi analysts said in a note dated Nov. 19. This includes 45 million to 60 million barrels from the United States, about 30 million barrels from China, 5 million barrels from India and 10 million barrels each from Japan and South Korea, the bank estimated.

CARACAS, Venezuela—The ruling Socialist government early Monday claimed sweeping victory in local and state elections that for the first time in four years included the participation of most of the country’s beleaguered, U.S.-backed opposition movement. With more than 90% of votes counted, President Nicolás Maduro’s party won all but three of the 23 state governor offices and most of the 3,000 races for mayor and municipal council positions that were up for grabs in Sunday’s elections, said the National Electoral Council after midnight on Monday. About 41% of eligible voters cast a ballot, a record-low participation rate.

A week ago more than 12,000 musicians played a classical piece together for more than five minutes as they sought to beat a Russian record that was set two years ago. Guinness World Records did not immediately respond to requests for comment. "El Sistema" counts some 350,000 children and youths among its rank, playing in a network of 180 orchestras.

UPATA, Venezuela — His opposition to Venezuela’s authoritarian leader had left him bloodied by government thugs, forced him into hiding in a foreign embassy and pushed him into a nearly two-year exile in Italy, where he sold bread in a train station as he thought of home. Américo De Grazia’s political defiance had also cost him his marriage and his savings. And yet here he was, back in his hometown in southeastern Venezuela, sweating through his shirt sleeves on stage — one of thousands of opposition candidates running in an election this Sunday that they are almost certain to lose. “We are in a time of turbulence,” Mr. De Grazia, 61, told voters as drums beat behind him, “and that demands we fight.”The political parties who oppose Venezuelan’s autocratic leader, Nicolás Maduro, have for years refused to participate in elections, arguing that to do so would legitimize a man who has spent nearly a decade jailing enemies, detaining journalists, co-opting political parties and banning key opposition figures from office, all as the country has fallen into an economic and humanitarian crisis.

As the economy recovers and populations resume road, rail and air travel, global oil demand has nearly rebounded to pre-pandemic levels. Benchmark oil prices have surged to multi-year highs over $86 a barrel, and some economists warn crude could surpass $100 a barrel, threatening the recovery. The market is now looking to the U.S. shale industry, which has provided most of the non-OPEC output increase over the past decade. The EIA sees U.S. output accelerating in the second half of 2022, for a 1.25 million bpd increase in crude and NGLs for the year. Total oil supply should reach 99.8 million bpd in the first quarter of 2022, surpassing demand estimated at 98.9 million bpd, said Hittle.

FILE PHOTO: A worker collects a crude oil sample at an oil well operated by Venezuela's state oil company PDVSA in Morichal, Venezuela, July 28, 2011. U.S. President Joe Biden has been considering releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) to cool gasoline prices, which hit a record high at California pumps this week. “With holiday season around the corner, increase in travelling demand may be the reason behind the decline in U.S. gasoline stocks. (Now) that may bring President Biden more pressure to release the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which may put oil prices at risk,” said Leona Liu, analyst at Singapore-based DailyFX. Analysts say SPR oil would only offer temporary relief and what is needed is increased supply from U.S. shale producers or the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

FILE PHOTO: A worker collects a crude oil sample at an oil well operated by Venezuela's state oil company PDVSA in Morichal, Venezuela, July 28, 2011. The IEA on Tuesday warned that while the “oil market remains tight by all measures, ... a reprieve from the price rally could be on the horizon ... due to rising oil supplies”. The agency said that high price levels will see U.S. oil production rising again in 2022, accounting for about 60% of its forecast of 1.9 million barrels per day for non-OPEC supply growth. A larger than expected fall in U.S. gasoline stocks capped some losses. Crude inventories rose by 655,000 barrels, the market sources said, compared with expectations for a 1.4 million barrel build, while distillate stocks rose by 107,000 barrels.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -Oil prices fell on Wednesday, continuing a recent streak of weakness, after OPEC and the International Energy Agency warned of impending oversupply and as COVID-19 cases in Europe increased the downside risks to demand recovery. FILE PHOTO: A worker collects a crude oil sample at an oil well operated by Venezuela's state oil company PDVSA in Morichal, Venezuela, July 28, 2011. Other nations, including the United States, have called for OPEC+ to boost output more swiftly. U.S. crude oil inventories fell by 2.1 million barrels last week, the latest government data showed, running against analyst expectations for a build of 1.4 million barrels. The United States currently has discretion to sell some 18 million barrels from the SPR thanks to previous Congressional approval in years past.

"If you want to be a Guinness World Records title holder just go for it," said 29-year-old Ashley Watson.

"Guinness World Records day is a global celebration of record breaking. It's a chance for anyone who wants to tick off their name in the famous Guinness world record books," he said.

Dr. Bagley, a former international studies professor, used bank accounts in his name and that of a company he created in Florida to launder about $2.5 million, keeping a commission for himself, prosecutors said. Peter Quijano, a lawyer for Dr. Bagley, declined to comment Tuesday. Mr. Quijano described Dr. Bagley as unfailingly devoted to his wife. “He is overwhelmed by dark thoughts that his arrest, in fact, hastened her death,” Mr. Quijano wrote in a sentencing memorandum. In court papers this month, prosecutors said that although Dr. Bagley’s age and health should be taken into consideration, some incarceration was necessary to serve as a deterrent.

President Joe Biden on Tuesday banned members of the Nicaraguan government from entering the United States as he issued a broad proclamation in response to an election that Washington has denounced as rigged in favor of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega. “The repressive and abusive acts of the Ortega government and those who support it compel the United States to act,” Biden said in the decree. Biden’s order came just a day after the United States, Britain and Canada imposed targeted sanctions on Nicaraguan officials in a concerted response to the Nov. 7 election that many countries have called a sham. Previous sanctions and travel bans on certain Nicaraguan officials imposed by Biden and his predecessor, Donald Trump, have failed to deter Ortega, and many analysts are skeptical whether new measures will have much impact. The Organization of American States (OAS) adopted a resolution on Friday saying Nicaragua’s election lacked “democratic legitimacy.” Twenty-five nations voted in favor and seven abstained, including Mexico, Honduras and Bolivia.

American journalist Danny Fenster, who was recently sentenced to 11 years of hard labor after spending nearly six months in jail in military-ruled Myanmar, was freed and on his way home Monday, a former U.S. diplomat who helped negotiate the release said. "Danny is one of many journalists in Myanmar who have been unjustly arrested simply for doing their job since the February coup," he said. Richardson said he discussed Fenster's release during a recent visit to Myanmar when he held face-to-face negotiations with Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing, the country's ruler. In an interview with The Associated Press after his most recent visit to Myanmar, Richardson said his talks there had focused on facilitating humanitarian assistance to the country, particularly the provision of COVID-19 vaccines.

VALENCIA, Venezuela, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Venezuelan artist and medical student Elianni Di Gregorio is using old bolivar notes as canvas for her paintings as she strives to give them new value after rampant hyper inflation and successive overhauls saw them discarded. Di Gregorio, 24, decided to paint on bolivar notes thrown away in the trash to restore some of the currency's former glory. In one of her paintings Di Gregorio used a pink 20-bolivar note to reproduce La Fornarina, which depicts a semi-nude woman in one of renaissance artist Raphael's most important works. "This is my way of building the Venezuela I want in the future, restoring value to banknotes that are no longer useful," Di Gregorio, who also plans to paint on banknotes from other countries, said. Hyperinflation also prompted artists in Zimbabwe to turn worthless Mugabe-era banknotes into paintings.
