The second phase of a presidential election audit in Venezuela begins on Monday.

Opposition leader Henrique Capriles has already boycotted the process, saying it does not go far enough.

Meanwhile, even supporters of Nicolas Maduro are impatient for the new president to tackle problems ranging from power cuts to inflation.

Rather than celebrating his victory, they want to see Maduro step up to the task - and fast.
