Every option is on the table as two presidents fight for legitimacy in Venezuela.
Venezuela's National Election Council announces that with almost 93 percent of polling stations reporting, Maduro wins nearly 68 percent of the votes, beating nearest challenger Henri Falcon by almost 40 points.
Venezuela's mainstream opposition is boycotting the election and two of their most popular leaders are barred from standing. Here's a look at the three candidates that are running in Sunday's vote.
The newly formed opposition coalition says the fraudulent election is rigged by officials loyal to socialist President Nicolas Maduro, who accuses US of pressuring the UN to disregard his request of sending an observer mission for May 20 polls.
The only challengers to Maduro are two former Chavez supporters who have distanced themselves from the current government, while the main opposition is boycotting the election.
