President Daniel Ortega congratulated Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) on their victory in 8 December municipal elections. The PSUV won over 58% of the vote and 196 of 337 municipalities. The election was seen as a test of Maduro’s presidency which he won earlier this year by a razor thin margin after the death of Hugo Chavez.
