|Nicolas Maduro, President Chavez's chosen successor, wins the April 14, 2013 Venezuela Presidential Eleciton|
The Venezuelan federal electoral system is very satisfactory as determined by the overall audit score of 78.83 percent (out of 100 percent). The FDA auditors measured
- one unsatisfactory passing score for legislation pertaining to electoral finance (52.5 percent);
- one very satisfactory score for legislation pertaining to candidates and parties (77.9 percent);
- two exceptional scores for legislation pertaining to media election coverage (100 percent) and voters (84.9 percent).
Overall the FDA recommends that the public get continuously and actively involved with the government legislative process and implementation if they want to protect and advance their democratic voice, and create a society of their choosing.
