Chinchilla and Rodriguez will be accompanied by other former presidents: Vicente Fox, of Mexico; Andres Pastrana of Colombia; and Jorge Quiroga of Bolivia.

According to former President Chinchilla, the presidents have been warned that their entry to Venezuela may be denied by the government of Nicolas Maduro.

“I am very honored to have been invited by the President of the National Assembly and a large group of democratic forces from Venezuela to accompany the citizens of that country in the courageous civic plebiscite (…). We are warned that government authorities could deny us entry. Our mission is of peace, we are only armed with our democratic convictions and our spirit of solidarity with the struggle of the Venezuelan people,” said Chinchilla.

The Venezuelan opposition plans to consult the people three points: if the constituent called by President Nicolás Maduro is unknown, what should be the role of the Armed Forces to restore constitutional order and if it supports the renewal of the Public Powers.

For this day, more than 2,000 voting points will be enabled so that citizens who wish can participate in the popular consultation.

The plebiscite will also be distributed in 82 countries.
