I might be an incurable optimist but the CNE has decided to postpone until next Monday the publication of the recall election norms. The draft that was presented Monday was simply unacceptable. Yesterday the political parties made their observations and there has been a general outcry in the press. Obviously the CNE directors must cogitate a little bit more on these norms.
However there might be a simpler explanation: the directors legal counsel could not resist to that long ingrained habit of Venezuela to legislate on every single detail making many a new law inapplicable from the start, a little bit like missing the forest for the trees. If to that you had the desire to make life difficult for the opposition, no wonder the first draft was such a blooper!
