Venezuela sets time for election story image
CARACAS, Venezuela (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Venezuelans will hit the polls in April to choose a successor to the late President Hugo Chavez.

Acting President Nicolas Maduro will run as the ruling party candidate.

Henrique Capriles is expected to run again for the opposition.

Capriles lost to Chavez in an October election by just under 11 points.

Chavez had anointed Maduro as his chosen successor before undergoing surgery in December for cancer.

The Constitution mandated the election be held within 30 days of Chavez's death on March 5th, but the date picked actually falls outside of that period.
