Chavez wins referendum

With 94% of votes counted, 54% backed an end to term limits, a National Electoral Council official said.
More than 11 million voters out of almost 17 million who were eligible took part in Sunday's referendum, said the head of the electoral body, Tibisay Lucena.
International observers said the ballot was free and fair, and opposition leaders were quoted as saying they would not contest the vote.
