More on Venezuela's recall referendum results... [part II]

By Aleksander Boyd

London 29.08.05 | I have just realised that the wording of the recall referendum's question as it appears in the CNN.com - World News Election Watch:

Voters were asked whether incumbent President Hugo CHAVEZ Frias should stay in office as president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

is different from the one presented to the Venezuelan electorate:

Do you agree to leave without effect the popular mandate given through legitimate democratic elections to the citizen Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías as president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela for the current presidential period?

As such I do apologize to aggravated parties and readers of this site for this gross oversight on my part. A YES vote to the question, as cited by CNN, is equal to a NO vote in the official question, thus 5,800,629 people voted in favour of Chavez's stay in office as president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
