[The Voice of Russia] Successor to Chavez Elected in Venezuela Presidential Election

I mentioned that CIA cannot do anything to manipulate Venezuela (on March 6).  Election results were just I expected.

A presidential election was held in Venezuela on 14th following the death of former President Chavez.  Acting President Maduro, successor to the late President Chavez, was elected.  AFP quoted the information from the Venezuelan national election board on 15th.

According to the information from the election board, Mr. Maduro won 50.66 percent of the vote while Mr. Capriles, the joint candidate for the opposition party, won 49.0 percent of the vote.

Mr. Maduro declared an election victory by saying, “Today we can say that we had a fair election triumph.”  Mr. Maduro is believed to follow suit with the policy to develop Venezuela proposed by Mr. Chavez.

English translation of a Japanese article: Nobuyo Yagi’s Monologue – April 16, 2013 –

Mr. Maduro, successor to Chavez, won the presidential election in Venezuela, South America.  As he is not so charismatic as Chavez, Maduro had a close contest with Capriles.  In actuality, however, Capriles, Maduro’s opponent, is a Jewish-Venezuelan millionaire and his parents are among the richest people in Venezuela that they control almost all mass media.  Considering the fact that through negative campaign against Maduro had been engaged in during the race, it is safe to say that this narrow margin indicates Maduro enjoys substantial support from the Chavez group (reformers).  

Incidentally, election-monitoring groups from various countries were sent to the election in Venezuela.  There is no doubt that election in Venezuela is far more democratic than that in Japan.
