President Nicolas Madura Vying for a Militarized Cabinet

Times are tough for the government in Venezuela and that can easily be seen by the reshaping of the inner offices of the current regime. Similar to what some other nations are doing around the world, President Nicolas Madura is vying for a militarized government, although the credibility of the nation’s security organizations are at an all-time low due to illegal activity reaching every level of command.

As the apparent need grows for those traveling to and throughout the country for Security Services, Venezuela does not seem to be positioned to see a more peaceful outlook any time soon. President Madura has appointed military and ex-military personnel to most of the top offices of government which means, of course, that he is getting ready for a fight. The unfortunate part about these moves is that many of the military commanders being appointed are known for their abuses against human rights, as well as their connections to criminal organizations, drug trafficking, money laundering, and support of armed militias in the area, including FARC.

These illegal activities have been carried out by the security services at all levels, but the fact which is most concerning about these developments is that almost all of the people appointed to office recently are either currently under investigation, or are currently under suspicion for serious offences. If the accusations against these men turn out to hold water it would mean the entire new Venezuelan government is made of up a quite untrustworthy and dangerous bunch.
