Previously, the National Assembly delivered a request to the National Electoral Council to hold the referendum.
On Wednesday, the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Justice Court declared the constitutionality of the questions of the referendum through which Venezuelans will rule on the sovereignty of their nation over Guayana Esequiba.
Approved previously by the National Assambly, this referendum will be held on December 3 and will contain the following questions:
1) Do you agree to reject by all means in accordance with the law, the line fraudulently interposed by the 1899 Paris Arbitration Award, which seeks to deprive us of our Guayana Esequiba?
2) Do you support the 1966 Geneva Agreement as the only valid legal instrument to reach a practical and satisfactory solution for Venezuela and Guyana regarding the controversy over the territory of Guayana Esequiba?
3) Do you agree with Venezuela's historical position of not recognizing the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice to resolve the territorial controversy over Guayana Esequiba?
