CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's opposition leader Henrique Capriles said on Thursday he accepted the election authority's decision to audit the rest of the electronic votes cast on Sunday, and said he believed his team would be vindicated.

"We can show the country the truth ... with this, we're where we want to be," Capriles told reporters after the National Electoral Council said it would audit the remaining 46 percent of electronic votes that have not been checked.
