Hugo Chavez's Political Heir Maduro Wins Presidency

The Takeaway
La Revolución continues in Venezuela with Hugo Chavez's heir winning a narrow election on Sunday. By a thin margin of just over one percentage point, Nicholas Maduro beat out his opponent and will go on to serve the remainder of Chavez's term in office following his death earlier this year. Maduro's opponent, Henrique Capriles Radonski, says he will not recognize the results and is calling for a recount.
