Presidential elections were held in Venezuela on 20 May 2018 with incumbent Nicolás Maduro being re-elected for a second six-year term. Several stakeholders expressed their concern over potential irregularities during the election. It registered the lowest voter turnout in the country's democratic history, to date.
The electoral process was rejected by the European Union and the majority of the main political actors in the Western world. The two leading candidates opposing Mr Maduro also rejected the results.
