As expected! Venezuela's legal high court battles intensify.
Monday 29, March 2004

The Electoral Court has finally given its verdict today and has decided to go the full 20 Justices to decide whether the Constitutional Court was right in overruling the Electoral Court. The 20 justices now will decide if there is any future for the Venezuelan legal system or if we enter into the no man's land of a de facto legal system.

The only little mystery is that the Electoral Court exhorts the parts to reach a deal for the questioned signatures, without waiting for the 20 justices to decide. Do they know something we do not know? Was that just a pill to soothe chavismo? Do they anticipate deliberate stalling by chavista justices?

Comments policy:

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
