The opposition in Venezuela claims to have validated enough signatures on a petition to oust President Nicolas Maduro.

It blames the Socialist leader for shortages of food and basic supplies and a high rate inflation.

Opposition leaders now hope to be able to move on with organising a recall referendum to remove the embattled president.

Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelan citizens gave fingerprints to verify signatures.

If election officials certify the process, a second petition will be prepared, which must be signed by four million people. Only then could a recall vote be held.
