The Real News <http://www.therealnews.com/> interviews Venezuela
Analysis<http://www.venezuelanalysis.com/> founder
Gregory Wilpert on Venezuela's April 14 elections, in which the candidate
of the Bolivarian revolution Nicolas Maduro beat the right-wing opposition
candidate Henrique Caprilles by more than 300,000 votes.

The opposition is refusing to accept the results, which were closer than
predicted, and is called for a recount. But Wilpert says a recount is
extremely unlikely to alter the results given how transparent and closely
observed Venezuela's electoral system is.
