WASHINGTON - The US government will designate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Monday for sanctions for undermining democracy, in response to Sunday's election of a legislative superbody that Washington denounced as a "sham" vote, several sources said.

No oil-related sanctions will be included in the announcement, but such measures remain under consideration, according to congressional sources and a person familiar with the matter.
