CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — A divided Venezuelan opposition found itself Monday on familiar territory, having lost an overwhelming majority of races disputed in a regional election a day earlier. But the divisions over how to move forward from their expected defeat and achieve their goal of knocking off President Nicolás Maduro have never been so evident.
The disagreements even extend to the act of voting itself, with one of its most recognizable leaders, skipping the polls Sunday, when more than 3,000 offices, including posts for majors and governors, were contested in the troubled South American country. The opposition parties ultimately took home three gubernatorial races, but working together, they had once won double that number.
