First projection: Chávez government will not have a 2/3 majority

0

On the basis of early results from various voting centers, we feel confident in projecting: the Chávez government will not have a 2/3 majority in the new National Assembly.

The Venezuelan Constitution says that certain legislative acts, such as Organic Laws and appointments of Supreme Court justices, require a 2/3 majority. The Chávez government will not have that majority.

It’s too soon to tell what the outcome of the Assembly will be, but early results are encouraging for the opposition.
