Maduro wins ..... by a whisker ! This is from the Independent Maduro, acting president since Chavez's 5 March death, held a double-digit advantage in opinion polls just two weeks ago, but electoral officials said he got just 50.7 per cent of the votes to 49.1 per cent for Capriles with nearly all ballots counted. The margin was about 234,935 votes. Turnout was 78 per cent, down from just over 80 per cent in the October election that Chavez won by a nearly 11-point margin. Maduro means Mature in Spanish . I wonder if this is the return to " sensible " politics in Venezuela ?
