Venezuela's National Electoral Council said Thursday it would audit votes cast in weekend presidential elections after an opposition challenge to the victory accorded President-elect Nicolas Maduro.

Council president Tibisay Lucena said the expanded audit would encompass all the ballot boxes not reviewed on election day, with about two thirds of them selected as a random sample.
