Audit finds no flaws in Venezuela vote

An audit of Venezuela's presidential election results has found no flaws in the snap vote to replace the late Hugo Chavez, the head of the National Electoral Commission said Tuesday. The opposition leader who lost the election by a tiny margin remained defiant and vowed not to give up, however. The commission reviewed paper receipts of nearly 4.6 million votes, or 99.98 percent of those cast, and found "no discrepancy" with the official electronic tallies, said commission president Tibisay Lucena.
