Venezuela didn't call an election. The dictatorship called a pseudo election. It's a Maduro's game...

If all of supposedly 'democratic' Latin America leaders find their power and do not recognize Maduro's charade, we'll have a powerful block leading the region towards true progress and freedom.

Having no opposing candidate is the best outcome for Venezuela. It delegitimizes Maduro in a better way than a cooked election result with a fake opponent.

Perhaps one more obvious nail but he is already delegitimized. This requires some kind of  intervention. They will not be ousted in time otherwise millions of desperate Venezuelans will pay the ultimate price.

After he’s locked up all the other possible candidates, who can win, result will be  irregular. Victory for Maduro, defeat of the Venezuela's people....

With one candidate the opposition could easily win. So, Maduro is winner  on unfair elections .

With inflation of 13,000% in Venezuela and an approval rating of 25%, Nicolas Maduro cannot win a fair election. But, election are not fair, and he will win.

There is no way the Venezuela elect was free an fair.  Also, easy to win an election when you ban the opposition.

3 million Venezuelans have fled the country so far. This is disastrous. That's 1/10 of the population.

Coincidence? Raul Castro due to step down as president in Cuba on 19th April, elections in Venezuela 3 days later on 22nd. Interesting times approaching.

Colombia President Santos says there's no way Venezuela President Maduro would allow for free and fair elections because he knows he'll lose them. Reiterates that upcoming Venezuela presidential elections have no legitimacy from Bogota's point of view.

Sadly, they're probably fleeing starvation for starvation. Not sure what the answer is to this.
