Support for Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro fell to a low of 22%, at a time when his government faces recession, high inflation and record low oil prices in five years, according to a survey published on Friday.

Commodity shortages and high prices are the main concern of respondents, according to the latest poll conducted by research firm Datanálisis, Reuters reported.

José Antonio Gil, director of pollster Datanálisis, told television channel Globovisión that the parliamentary elections this year will not be easy for the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), given the difficult economic environment and the usually high correlation between the president's popularity and support for his political group.

According to a previous Datanalisis survey, Maduro's approval in November fell 5.7 percentage points to 24.5%.

Gil said that 40% of respondents were dissenters, but only 19% support any of the parties comprising the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD).
Support for the PSUV reached 16%.

Maduro narrowly won the presidency of Venezuela in April 2013 after Hugo Chávez died from cancer. Ever since then, Maduro's popularity has dropped nearly 29 percentage points.
