"They do not recognize the legitimacy of the electoral process carried out in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela that ended on May 20, for not complying with the worldwide standards of a democratic, free, fair and transparent process", a translation of the statement issued by the Lima Group reads. The measures are unlikely to hasten a democratic transition, however, unless the Maduro regime faces greater pressure from its own populace. But an invasion is not among the options the US or other countries is considering, even though Trump asked advisers why the United States couldn't simply invade Venezuela as it has other countries.

Javier Bertucci got around 11 per cent.

The turnout for Sunday's election was 48 percent - the lowest since Hugo Chavez was first elected in 1998.

He promised to spend the next two years before scheduled congressional elections repairing an economy he says has been badly damaged by mafias backed by Colombia and the US. Maduro said he had never seen a candidate dispute results even before they were announced.

"In the red points they were engaging in shameless vote manipulation", said Bertucci.

Both of Maduro's opponents accused electoral authorities of being blind to blatant violations before the vote and on election day.

But most "Red Points" were just a few steps away.

Government critics also say other voters were pressured into voting for Maduro. At the same time, all parties should respect the choices made by the Venezuelan people.

During the previous elections, polling stations were kept open beyond its closing time at 6 pm.
