Chavez’ illegal candidacies

August 27, 2003

Last Saturday Hugo Chavez announced “his candidates” for Governors of a number of states and said they would immediately start campaining for elections that will take place next year in June. Well, all of Chavez’ candidates hold public office, Venezuelan law states that nobody can campaign for public office without resigning from public office first. Moreover, the law also states that nobody can announce his/her candidacy for a position until seven months before an scheduled election. Thus, Chavez is batting two for two on illegal candidacies!
