President Nicolas Maduro

Polling Stations across Venezuela have been opened for a Presidential Election in which President Nicolas Maduro is expected to be easily reelected. The opposition has Boycotted the Elections.

Maduro, the Political heir to the late leftist firebrand Hugo Chavez, is expected to defeat Henri Falcon, a former Army Officer who failed to gain the endorsement of the main opposition leaders, and evangelical candidate Javier Bertucci.
