The United States has condemned Sunday’s elections for state governors in Venezuela, branding them neither “free nor fair”. The State Department said ballot papers had been manipulated and polling stations moved “without public notice”. President Nicolás Maduro’s supporters won 17 of 23 state governorships but opposition leaders have alleged fraud. 
The opposition Democratic Union Roundtable coalition has refused to recognise the result.  “We condemn the lack of free and fair elections yesterday in Venezuela. The voice of the Venezuelan people was not heard,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.  She alleged there had been “last-minute changes to polling station locations without public notice; manipulation of ballot layouts; and limited availability of voting machines in opposition neighbourhoods”.
