Venezuela leader rallies socialists at first post-Chavez congress

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's ruling Socialist Party began a six-day congress on Saturday with President Nicolas Maduro seeking to fire up militants and quell dissidents who say he is failing to fix the economy or end graft. It was the party's third congress since formation in 2008, but the first without its charismatic founder, former president Hugo Chavez who died last year of cancer after ruling the South American OPEC nation for 14 years. #facebook #Economy #Business #Brazil #Arabic #Venezuela #Government #Latin America #Mexico
