CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's opposition is calling for a national protest later this month against a "fraudulent" election it says is stacked in favour of President Nicolas Maduro, the first major mobilization since last year's wave of street protests.

A recently-formed umbrella group called the Broad Front For A Free Venezuela, which includes opposition parties as well as students, union activists and university professors, called for the March 17 demonstration at a Thursday gathering.
