Venezuelans Say "NO" to CLCB™
(Hat tip: Katerina at Vox Nova)
Castro-Loving Commie Bastard's™ proposed constitutional "reforms" fail in Venezuelan referendum:
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez Sunday lost his first two elections ever since he was elected in December 1998. His intended changes to the Constitution were put to vote in two blocks. Block A -including his proposal of indefinite presidential reelection- was rebutted by 50.7 percent of voters.My Comments:
Block B -which encompassed proposals such as reducing the legal age to vote from 18 years to 16 years and the suppression of both due process and the right to information under states of emergency- was rejected by 51.05 percent of Venezuelans.
This was one of the few times in Venezuelan electoral history that abstention played such a major role in results. Block A of the proposed reform was rejected with a lead of only 124,962 votes. Block B was rebutted with a lead of 187,196 votes.
The National Electoral Council (CNE) Monday is expected to disclose the results in all of the country's states and municipalities.
You mean people aren't so keen on voting away their freedoms?
