Verkiezingsuitslag Venezuela

May 21, 2018 - Venezolaanse president Nicolás Maduro is herkozen voor nog een termijn van zes jaar in verkiezingen, getekend door de boycot van de oppositie van de Democratische Eenheid Rondetafel en claims van stemfraude.

The primary opposition candidate, Henri Falcón, rejected the result soon after the polls closed.

With 92 percent of the votes counted, Maduro had 67.7 percent or 5.8 million votes while Falcón won 21.2 percent (1.8 million votes) and Javier Bertucci secured 10.8 percent (925,000 votes), according to the National Electoral Council. Just 46% of the electorate turned out to vote.

The administration of U.S. President Donald Trump said it would not recognise the result.
