Venezuela Sets Presidential Election for April 14

(Caracus) – Venezuela will hold a presidential election to succeed late leader Hugo Chavez on April 14, the national electoral council has announced. In a statement, Council President Tibisay Lucena said, “We call a presidential election for April 14″.
The constitution mandated the election be held within 30 days of Chavez’s March 5 death, but the date picked falls outside that period. Critics have already complained that officials violated the constitution by swearing in Vice President Nicolas Maduro as acting leader.
