Got my tinfoil hat on. Aluminum foil comes in handy sometimes.
Here's the sole problem with the idea that he needs an increase of power: Maduro has every bit of power there is in Venezuela. Opponents can be jailed without habeas corpus, the three branches of gov are run by loyalists, etc. Every viable (<< used for a reason) opponent has been jailed or has already left. The exodus of the wealthy has driven a housing boom in Miami and from Mexico to Peru

The only doubt about Maduro has been with his ability to control a hungry National Guard and Army which by any measure holds the true power in Venezuela.

Distract from internal strife? Certainly, But, to increase hi power? Meh.
