Venezuela set for another round of protests as Maduro rules out fresh elections

Venezuela set for another round of protests as Maduro rules out fresh electionsVenezuela's President Nicolas Maduro said he was prepared to hold negotiations with the US-backed opposition but ruled out early presidential elections as Caracas braced itself for fresh street protests. "I am ready to sit down at the negotiating table with the opposition so that we could talk for the good of Venezuela," Maduro told the Russian state news agency in an interview in Caracas. Last week the oil-rich but economically devastated Latin American country was plunged into uncertainty when the US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself "acting president". The United States, a dozen Latin American countries and Canada have recognised Guaido as interim president, while China and Russia - Venezuela's two main creditors – have urged non-interference. Support for Venezuela leadership In the interview with RIA Novosti, Maduro also said he would support early parliamentary elections. "It would be very good to conduct parliamentary elections at an earlier stage, it would be a good form of political discussion," Maduro said. At the same time he dismissed the possibility of holding a new presidential poll any time soon. "Presidential elections in Venezuela have taken place, and if imperialists want new elections let them wait until 2025," he said in an apparent reference to Washington. Guaido called for more protests on Wednesday and a mass march on the weekend, in a bid to keep up pressure on Maduro in the streets. Wednesday's action would not be a major march, but a series of small concentrations, Guaido said. The UN human rights office said the protests had so far led to the deaths of more than 40 people. Maduro has been in charge since 2013 but his re-election in May was branded illegitimate by the European Union, United States and Organization of American States.

"I am carrying out my duties as commander-in-chief according to the Constitution consolidating the national Bolivarian armed forces," he said. "And the Bolivarian armed forces are demonstrating a lesson in ethics, loyalty and discipline." Maduro also claimed that US President Donald Trump had ordered the government of Colombia to assassinate him. "If something happens to me one day then Donald Trump and Colombian President Ivan Duque will be responsible for everything that is happening to me," he said, adding however that he was in good hands. "At the same time, I am protected. We have a good system of defence in place and moreover, we have more significant protection – this is protection from God who will give me a long life," Maduro added. Russia has denounced the opposition's "usurpation of power", calling Maduro the crisis-hit country's legitimate leader. Russia and Venezuela have a long history of ties and Maduro's predecessor Hugo Chavez, known for his tirades against the United States, was a welcome guest at the Kremlin.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Veep Costars ‘Psyche Her Up’ for Third Round of Chemotherapy

[brightcove:5522509904001 default]

This article originally appeared on People.com.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has some pretty special “darling bozos” in her life.

The Veep star — who announced her battle with breast cancer in September — went in for her third round of chemotherapy on Thursday, and her costars Matt Walsh and Sam Richardson decided to film a small sketch to motivate her.

“2 of my darling Bozos (love them so much) psyche me up for 3rd chemo today,” Louis-Dreyfus, 56, captioned the video on Twitter. “And guess what? It worked! I’m psyched AF.”

In the clip, Walsh, 53, and Richardson, 33, decided send some “motivational quotes” to “psyche her up” ahead of her treatment. They sit down to Google some ideas, but only seem to be coming up with quotes from less-than-ideal candidates: Joseph Stalin, Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein.

Eventually they give up and decide to sing for her instead, breaking into a rendition of Survivor’s “Eye Of The Tiger.”

“Kick some a— today, Julia!” they cheer.

Louis-Dreyfus revealed her breast cancer battle on social media Sept. 28, writing, “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one. The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring friends, and fantastic insurance through my union.”

“The bad news is that not all women are so lucky,” she added. “So let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”

The announcement came just days after Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth consecutive outstanding lead actress Emmy for her role as Selina Meyer on Veep, setting the record for most wins for a performance in the same role for the same series.

HBO told PEOPLE that Louis-Dreyfus learned of her diagnosis one day after the Sept. 17 award show, noting that “it in no way impacted the decision to make this the final season” and that the production schedule will be adjusted as needed.

“Our love and support go out to Julia and her family at this time,” said the network in statement. “We have every confidence she will get through this with her usual tenacity and undaunted spirit, and look forward to her return to health and to HBO for the final season of Veep.”

A premiere date for Veep season 7 has not yet been announced.

This article originally appeared on People.com.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is “Roar”-ing through her fight with breast cancer.

“Chemo #2: finito. We are NOT f—ing around here,” the Veep star, 56, shared on Instagram Thursday along with a photo of herself in sunglasses and a black hoodie jacket along with a fake mustache drawn above her upper lip.

Louis-Dreyfus also thanked Katy Perry, as well as Veep costars Tony Hale and Timothy Simons, for being “hilarious and loving inspiration” amid her cancer battle. In addition, the Emmy winner quoted Perry’s 2013 hit single “Roar.”

The post was the first photo of the actress since she announced her breast cancer diagnosis on social media in late September.

“1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one,” Louis-Dreyfus wrote in her cancer announcement. “The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring friends, and fantastic insurance through my union. The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”

The mother of two’s rep told PEOPLE in a statement, “Julia is incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and well wishes.”

Also in September, HBO told PEOPLE in a statement that Louis-Dreyfus learned she had breast cancer just one day after she won her sixth consecutive Emmy, setting the record for most wins for a performance in the same role for the same series.
