FRAUDE : VENEZUELA LAWMAKERS BRAWL AMID ELECTION TENSIONS

Apr. 30 8:20 PM EDT








CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Members of Venezuela's National Assembly say postelection tensions set off a brawl between lawmakers that left one opposition assembly member badly bruised and bleeding.




Opposition assembly member Ismael Garcia tells The Associated Press that pro-government legislators threw punches Tuesday night after members of his coalition tried to protest a proposal barring them from legislative activities.





Assembly member Julio Borges appeared on an independent television station soon after with blood running down one side of his swollen face. Pro-government legislators appeared on state TV accusing opposition members of attacking them.





The opposition has refused to accept President Nicolas Maduro's narrow April 14 victory, prompting the pro-government side to try to bar them from the assembly. Tuesday's fight was the second in which opposition legislators said the other side attacked them.

The National Electoral Board has ruled that President Nicolas Maduro -- the leftist heir to the late Chavez -- won by 1.49 percent of the vote, amending an earlier tally that had Maduro up by 1.8 percent.








The Board has insisted it is legally impossible to carry out a full recount, and that no audit can reverse Maduro's win.





The 40-year-old Capriles has said he will not accept anything short of a full recount, and in a Twitter posting on Monday he lashed out at Maduro, 50, calling him a "laggard who illegitimately has stolen the presidency."
