This is the referendum question

January 14, 2009

And this will be the rather obtuse question that Venezuelans will vote in the upcoming referendum:

Do you approve of the widening of the political rights of Venezuelans in the terms contemplated in the amendment to articles 230, 160, 174, 192 and 162 of the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, processed by the National Assembly, which allows people to run for all positions of popular election in such a way that their election will be the exclusive expression of the vote of the people?

which is a loose translation of:

¿Aprueba usted la ampliación de los derechos políticos de las venezolanas y los venezolanos en los términos contemplados en la enmienda de los artículos 230, 160, 174, 192 y 162 de la Constitución de la República Bolivariana de Venezuela, tramitada por la Asamblea Nacional, al permitirse la postulación para todos los cargos de elección popular de modo que su elección sea expresión exclusiva del voto del pueblo?
