Maduro announced as victor in Venezuela election

EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL Ruling party candidate Nicolas Maduro narrowly won Venezuela's presidential election on Sunday (April 14), the electoral authority said, allowing him to continue the socialist policies of the late Hugo Chavez. The National Electoral Council said Maduro won 50.7 percent of the votes, compared to 49.1 percent for his young rival, Miranda state Governor Henrique Capriles. It said more than 99 percent of the votes had been counted and that the result was "irreversible." Chavez, who ruled for 14 years, anointed Maduro as his political heir in his last speech to the country before succumbing to cancer on March 5. That gave his former vice president and foreign minister a huge advantage but Capriles narrowed the gap in the final days of the campaign and the result was much closer than many had expected.
