Voting centers across Venezuela's capital appeared largely empty during Sunday's presidential election, and authorities kept polling stations open past the official closing time while government officials offered assurances that millions turned out to vote early. Opposition leaders said the lifeless voting centers were evidence that Venezuelans heeded their call to abstain from voting in an election they contended was certain to be rigged in favor of socialist President Nicolas Maduro. It was unclear when results might be made available. Both Maduro and two anti-government candidates who broke with the opposition's push to boycott the election urged voters late in the day to go to the polls.

There is belief Labour could take the Tory-dominated borough of Hillingdon for the first time in 20 years at the upcoming council elections despite having to overturn a seemingly unassailable majority. That’s the message from leader of the council’s Labour group and candidate for Townfield ward, Peter Curling, as his party gears up to try to battle for the 22 wards and 65 seats up for grabs at the Hillingdon London Borough Council elections on May 3. The Conservatives currently have 42 councillors compared to 23 for Labour and his party would need to win 33 seats in total to take the borough with a majority of one, but Mr Curling insists the council is “really one to watch”.
