Oooo buddy. I was there last time there was a shift in power. Get ready for some real instability.
You can probably expect people that were for Henrique Capriles looking to get him to power. Even though he lost, many people thought that the election was rigged. So you will have that.
The current Vice PresidentNicolás Maduro is a joke. He is not very progressive, but more socialist (he was hand picked by Chavez to be his successor). If he gets into power look for the relations with the US to stay the same. He has brokered deals to make the Colombia - Venezuela boarders more peacful, but many in Venezuela question how good a deal it was, and for whome as many in San Antonio Tachira are seeing murder by Colombian guerillas continue at the same pace.
I am excited to see what happens. While death isn't easy on anyone, and to wish death on anyone is in poor taste, this was much needed. There is a flower waiting to bloom in Venezuela. But for the last 15 years it has been held back by weeds.
