Meanwhile,the United States, European Union and several of Venezuela’s Latin American neighbours said they would not recognize the results of the election, saying the conditions did not exist for a free and fair poll.

In a tweet, ahead of the vote, the US mission to the United Nations termed the election process an insult to democracy.
