Venezuelan opposition-led congress to replace GuaidoTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_The accusations are related to the millions of dollars that the United States have donated to the Venezuelan opposition aimed at struggling against the government of ruling President Nicolas Maduro, as some Guaido has kept most of this money to himself and his cronies.

Guaido has dismissed the accusations, claiming they are meant to obstruct his intention of being ratified as parliament speaker for one more year. Nonetheless pro-government officials insist Guaido will be removed from his post.

Likewise, inside the opposition-led congress, many propose his replacement. Meanwhile on the street, former Guaido supporters voice disappointment.

Meanwhile analysts say that Guaido's reputation is severely damaged. Guaido's political decay comes in days when the US backed-opposition faces internal conflicts.

Juan Guaido is accused of stealing funds donated by the US instead of using them to struggle for Venezuela's democracy. As the scandal goes on, many of his former collaborators have gone away.
