#Chavez protege #Maduro election result is not recognized by #Capriles

(Nicolas Maduro), a former bus driver and protege of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, has been declared the narrow winner of that country’s elections. But the opposition is not accepting the results.Opposition candidate Henrique Capriles said he did not recognize the official results that gave Maduro 50.7 percent support versus 49.1 percent for him, a difference of just 235,000 ballots.”Mr. Maduro, if you were illegitimate before, now you are even more loaded with illegitimacy,” Capriles said, adding that his team had identified more than 3,000 “incidents” during the voting.Capriles’ refusal to accept the result raised fears of political unrest in Venezuela, an OPEC nation with the world’s biggest oil reserves.
It would be dangerous to question Maduro. Something tells me that this election really was rigged. Something also tells me that there have been other elections that have been rigged, inside of Venezuela and outside.
