Surprisingly, though, the nation presently suffers from severe food and energy crises These crises have resulted in violent protests demanding President Nicolas Maduro s ouster, yet he retains a firm grip on power This thesis asks why By exploring both crises, as well as President Maduro s relationship with Venezuela s elites civilian and military leadership and military politicization that started with President Hugo Chavez, this thesis shows the following reasons for Maduro s endurance despite the crises Regardless of what President Maduro states regarding sabotage and conspiracies as causes, this thesis finds that Venezuela s food crisis results from over reliance on the oil industry, lack of a developed agricultural sector, strong dependence on food imports, government controlled food prices, and inflation the energy crisis derives from inadequate maintenance, a lack of appropriate investments, failure to diversify sources of energy, extreme dependency on hydroelectric power, and corruption Last, through the lens of Polga Hecimovich s four P s, this thesis shows that President Nicolas Maduro remains in power by implementing a system of profit, promotions, allocation of political positions, and purges, and that he also retains elite loyalty through ideological indoctrination instilled by President Hugo Chavez I INTRODUCTION A SIGNIFICANCE OF THE RESEARCH QUESTION B
