Scope and Contents
Campaign ephemera and newspaper coverage of the 2013 Venezuelan presidential election.
A presidential election was held in Venezuela on 14 April 2013 following the death of President Hugo Chávez on 5 March 2013.
Voters gave Nicolás Maduro—who had assumed the role of acting president since Chávez's death—a narrow victory over his opponent
Henrique Capriles Radonski, the Governor of Miranda. Capriles had run in the previous election less than a year before, losing
to Chávez by an 11-point margin. This time the margin of victory was much smaller (being 1.49%), and thus became the closest
Presidential Election of the country since the 1968 election. [Wikipedia, 2013/9/3]
