Carter and OAS endorse Chavez win

From CNN:
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and the head of the Organization of American States on Monday endorsed the results of Venezuela's recall referendum that President Hugo Chavez won.

"Our findings coincided with the partial returns announced today by the National Elections Council," Carter, one of the top election observers, told a joint news conference with OAS Secretary-General Cesar Gaviria.

The announcement appeared to deflate opposition claims of widespread fraud in the voting that began Sunday and ended early Monday.
