Venezuela Election

The results are in and Venezuelans have elected Hugo Chavez's hand-picked successor to become the South American nation's new leader.  But the pro-capitalist opposition isn't ready to concede just yet, calling for a recount after an extremely narrow result.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown has been following the results from Miami:

Venezuela Election

Nicolas Maduro, picked by dying Socialist Hugo Chavez, wins Venezuela's Presidential election, but only by a percentage point.

(Maduro, with translation) "If seven-and-a-half million Venezuelans said that Nicolas Maduro should be the President of the Republic until 2019, this must be respected.

Henrique Capriles

Meaning only a few hundred thousand people might have decided the election, enough for moderate opposition leader Henrique Capriles to want a recount.

(Capriles, with translation) "I say to the candidate of the government, the one defeated is you.  You and what you represent."
