Although President Nicolas Maduro won his office by a narrow margin, he has since been confirmed by both an audit of the vote and, Tuesday, a Supreme Court of Justice ruling.

Nonetheless opposition leader Henrique Capriles won’t give up the ghost.

On Twitter, Capriles said there is a lack of justice in the country.

In related news, Maduro this week compared his ally and predecessor, Hugo Chavez, to Jesus Christ.
