Previously, Maduro stated Chavez “who is there in front of Christ … must have influenced” the papal succession of Argentinian pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio, as he is also South American.

“Venezuelan politics seem to be plagued by magic realism,” notes. “This isn’t the first time Maduro — who is running for president against the opposition candidate Henrique Capriles Radonsky — has mentioned the beyond during his campaign. Maduro, who lacks the charisma and larger-that-life image of the controversial Chavez, has been using the legacy of the dead dictator as his biggest weapon during his campaign. In fact, his campaign slogan is ‘Long Live Chavez, Forever.'”
