Maduro was set to be inaugurated in Venezuela Friday, even as election officials moved to defuse a political crisis by yielding to demands for an audit of the results in Sunday's bitterly contested elections. The last minute development came after Maduro flew to a South American summit in Peru Thursday, where he received international support for his new government hours before he was to be sworn in to succeed the late Hugo Chavez who died of cancer March 5.
