With the country still in mourning over the death of Hugo Chavez, election season has begun again in Venezuela.

Capriles, who is governor of Venezuela's Miranda state, lost to an ailing Chavez in October, so how might things be different this time around?

El Nuevo Herald reporter Antonio Delgado has the latest. Listen above.
