In Venezuela, 18 newly elected socialist governors have been sworn in by theĀ constituent assembly.

According to the BBC news, five governors from the opposition Roundtable for Democracy coalition boycotted the event.

They said they refused to bow to the constituent assembly, which they consider illegitimate.

The boycott is the latest stand-off between the opposition and the governing socialist party amid a grave economic and political crisis.
