DORAL, Fla. (AP) — The mayor of a Miami suburb with the largest population of Venezuelans outside the South American country will be presenting a key to the city to a prominent opposition leader.
Doral Mayor Luigi Boria will present a key to the City of Doral to Maria Corina Machado on Monday.
Machado ran in Venezuela's opposition primaries for the presidential election last year. She lost but became the national coordinator for candidate Henrique Capriles.
Capriles lost against the late President Hugo Chavez in October and has rejected the result of an April 14 presidential election narrowly won by Nicolas Maduro.
Machado recently underwent surgery on her nose, which she said was broken when political rivals threw her to the floor and kicked her in the face.
Many in Doral are strongly anti-Maduro.
