the redefinitions of the Republic as a Socialist State, which now will
be a centralized one and the indefinite reelection, imply fundamental
changes to the Constitution, which require a Constituent Assembly (see Art. 342)?
25 new articles were not part of the first and second discussions of
the proposed reform, as they were introduced after the second
discussion, doesn’t this mean that they have to go back and begin the
process with a first discussion (see Art. 343)?
original argument to why the reform should be voted as a block, was
that Chavez’ proposal was a single unit and could thus not be voted in
parts. Doesn’t this mean that now that the Assembly has introduced 25
new and separate articles that argument is no longer valid?
these four items, isn’t the proposed Constitutional reform totally and
absolutely illegal and thus constitutes a coup de etat against the
current Constitution, using the favorite language of Chavismo?
