Overview: Venezuela

A bluff former trades union leader (and before that a bus-driver) Maduro had been expected to win easily; however, Mr Maduro’s margin of victory turned out to be an almost marginal 1.83 per cent. Mr Maduro may have assumed the mantle of leading both his party and his country, but the winning margin was small enough to sow a seed of doubt about his legitimacy and his ability to continue as party leader. Mr Capriles challenged the election outcome, alleging numerous contraventions of Venezuela’s electoral legislation – of which the most serious seemed to be the illegal use of state controlled media to influence voters. However, the first, and most obvious conclusion to be drawn from the October elections was that Chavismo without Chávez had got off to a pretty indifferent start. The result called into question not only the movement’s domination of Venezuelan politics, but also raised doubts about the movement’s ability to survive without its leader. The inescapable truth was that approximately 700,000 people who had once voted for Chávez ended up voting for Capriles on this occasion.
