TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -Venezuela's opposition coalition refused to recognise the results of Sunday's gubernatorial elections where the ruling socialists won a surprise majority, raising the specter of more political turmoil in the oil-rich nation.
The Democratic Unity's election campaign chief, Gerardo Blyde, demanded a complete audit of the 23 governor races and called on its candidates to lead "street activities" on Monday in protest over the results.
"We do not recognise any of the results at this time. We are facing a very serious moment for the country," Blyde said.
The official results showed a landslide win for President Nicolas Maduro's socialists.
