Maduro leads as Venezuela prepares to vote

Profile of Nicolas Maduro, the handpicked successor to late president Hugo Chavez.

    The dying wish of Hugo Chavez may very well be granted on Sunday: The late president had urged Venezuelans to elect Nicolas Maduro so he could carry on his "socialist revolution."

    Maduro is leading in opinion polls over opposition candidate Henrique Capriles.
