Maduro re-elected as President of Venezuela for next six years

In Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro was re-elected as President for the next six years in an election characterized by a boycott by the Opposition and allegations of irregularities.

In a country which has been hit by an economic crisis which is resulting among other things in a shortage of food and basic needs, only 46% of the electorate went out to vote.

The main Opposition candidate, Henri Falcon, immediately declared that he would not recognize the result because he said that the electoral process was invalid. He insisted that Venezuela should hold new elections.
