On March 5, 2013 Venezuela's Vice President Nicolas Maduro announced that President Hugo Chavez had died, opening up a period of serious tension and uncertainty in Venezuela. Will Chavez's party unite in support of his annointed successor, Nicolas Maduro, and will he be able to sustain popularity and chavismo? Will the opposition remain supportive of Henry Capriles who lost the election in October? How will Venezuela's relations with the rest of Latin America and the U.S. change? Wilson Center experts answered questions from the media in a recorded conference call on these topics and more, with audio and full transcript available here.
