Venezuelan opposition meets to set legislative agenda

Venezuela’s opposition met Friday to set its legislative agenda after winning a landslide victory in the National Assembly, but is already on a collision course with leftist President Nicolas Maduro. One of the opposition’s first moves when the new legislative session opens on January 5 will likely be to pass an amnesty law for what it says are some 80 political prisoners who have been unjustly jailed, said lawmaker Tomas Guanipa. Maduro has vowed to veto any such bill.
