We present images of Venezuela's Vice President Nicolas Maduro. The country will hold a presidential election on April 14, officials said on Saturday, as acting President Maduro tries to benefit from an emotional outpouring for his late mentor, Hugo Chavez, and win his own term in office.

Maduro, a physically imposing former union leader who served as foreign minister and vice president under Chavez, has vowed to keep the late leader's self-styled socialist revolution alive.

Venezuela's Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro speaks during a meeting in Tiquipaya, on the outskirts of Cochabamba. Madurao is part of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez delegation during Chavez's tour of Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia and Colombia.
