Venezuela's elections council chief, Tibisay Lucena, arrives for a press conference to announce April 14 as the date for the country's presidential election to choose a successor to Hugo Chavez, in Caracas, Venezuela, Saturday, March 9, 2013. The constitution mandated the election be held within 30 days of Chavez's March 5 death, but the date picked falls outside that period. Critics of the socialist government already complained that officials violated the constitution by swearing in Vice President Nicolas Maduro as acting leader Friday night.
