Associated Press

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — A proposal meant to guide electoral authorities in setting the date for Venezuela’s presidential election includes more than 20 potential options ranging from as soon as mid-April through early December. The proposal announced Wednesday will be presented over the next few days to the governing party-loyal National Electoral Council. The electoral body will choose the election date. Should it pick a date before July 1, the government would be in violation of an agreement it signed in October with a faction of the opposition that called for the contest to take place in the second half of the year.
