Venezuelans were set to learn on Monday the scope of a state of emergency that President Nicolas Maduro declared at the start of the weekend, as the country's political crisis enters a critical stage.Maduro late Friday extended a decree of "economic emergency" first announced in January that allows him, among other things, to seize paralyzed factories.Maduro has routinely accused the United States of conspiring with wealthy business interests to destroy his government.Oil revenues represent 95 percent of Venezuela's export earnings, according to OPEC, and the United States is Venezuela's main oil export market, taking in 40 percent of its production.The opposition says it has collected 1.8 million signatures backing a referendum on Maduro's time in office.
