Venezuela's interim President Nicolas Maduro gestures to supporters as he leaves a polling station after voting in the presidential election in Caracas, Venezuela, Sunday, April 14.

 

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelan opposition candidate Henrique Capriles is refusing to accept the results of Sunday's presidential election and is demanding a recount.

Henrique Capriles says his campaign tally of votes came up with, in his words, "a result that is different from the results announced today."

The official returns announced by the government-dominated electoral council gave the late President Hugo Chavez's chosen successor, Nicolas Maduro, a narrow victory — 50.7 percent to 49.1 percent.
