Venezuelan socialist leader Nicolas Maduro emerged from Sunday’s election as the winner of another six-year presidential term, but several foreign nations disputed the legitimacy of his victory.
Venezuela’s National Electoral Council reported that Maduro won nearly 68 percent of votes with about 93 percent of polling stations reporting. His nearest rival, Henri Falcon, finished more than 40 percentage points behind Maduro. Javier Bertucci, a TV evangelist, came in third with 11 percent of the vote.
