Protests in Venezuela 2013

More Info
Following the death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in March 2013, elections were held to elect a new president. The new President-elect, Nicolas Maduro, was hand-picked by Chavez previous to his death and took the victory in April 2013 elections. Opposition figures have claimed election irregularities, including fake voter IDs, and intimidation, and have demanded a full recount after the results indicated an extremely narrow victory. Maduro has accused the opposition of plotting a coup. Protests have resulted in violent clashes, leaving at least seven dead, 61 injured, and some 135 arrested.
