Prayer Vigil for Venezuela as Maduro delays removing currency bills amid crisis & protests

With protests rocking his unpopular government, embattled President Nicolas Maduro pushed back to next month taking Venezuela's highest denomination bill out of circulation. Maduro, who spoke after a meeting with administration officials, said he also would keep the borders with Brazil and Colombia closed until January 2. "We will break the embargo they are trying to impose on us, the persecution and the sabotage," Maduro pledged.He promised a December announcement about when the new bills would arrive, without indicating from where they would be flown.The president, whose popularity has plummeted, says the 100-bolivar note had to be killed because "mafias" are hoarding it abroad in what he calls a US-backed plot to destabilize Venezuela.The bill is worth about 15 US cents at the highest official rate, and until recently accounted for 77 percent of the cash in circulation in Venezuela.Late Friday, Maduro blamed opposition politicians for the unrest, claiming that there were pictures and videos of some opposition members of the National Assembly involved in "attempts of vandalism and some acts of violence."
Maduro has presided over an unraveling of Venezuela's oil-rich economy as crude prices have plunged. He and predecessor Hugo Chavez have made the economy increasingly state-led.Now the import-dependent country is desperately short of food, medicine and basic household goods.Venezuela currently has the world's highest inflation rate, set to hit 475 percent this year, according to an IMF forecast.The government is trying to introduce new bills in denominations up to 200 times higher than the old ones.But the plan went off the rails when Maduro ordered the 100-bolivar note removed from circulation before the new bills arrived.
