Venezuela to Hold Unofficial Referendum
Venezuela's opposition will hold a symbolic referendum this Sunday to give voters the opportunity to reject President Nicolas Maduro's plans to rewrite the constitution.
The plan announced by National Assembly President Julio Borges is a dramatic escalation of the opposition's effort to fight Maduro's proposal. Borges said that the vote would be held July 16 — two weeks before Maduro is asking Venezuelans to go to the polls to choose delegates for a special assembly to overhaul the charter.
