Venezuelans voted for a new legislature on Sunday in an election that may punish the ruling Socialists for a brutal economic crisis and give the opposition a long-sought platform to challenge President Nicolas Maduro.

A former bus driver and foreign minister, Maduro, 53, voted in the same poor neighborhood that his mentor and predecessor Hugo Chavez used to, on a hill overlooking the presidential palace.
