Venezuelan opposition leader rejects poll results

Caracas, April 15 (IANS) Venezuela’s opposition leader Henrique Capriles said Monday that he refused to accept the election results and demanded a recount of all votes after acting president Nicolas Maduro narrowly won Sunday’s vote.

“I do not compromise with lies and corruption,” Capriles told a press conference, adding that the opposition will not recognize the results “until all votes are counted”.

According to the National Electoral Council, Maduro defeated Capriles, who represents the Democratic Unity Roundtable coalition by a margin of less than 2 percentage points, or about 235,000 votes, reported Xinhua.
