For those of you nostalgic for Pravda
Simon Romero reports in the New York Times about Hugo Chávez's proposed constitutional changes:
President Hugo Chávez will unveil a project to change the Constitution on Wednesday that is expected to allow him to be re-elected indefinitely, a move that would enhance his authority to accelerate a socialist-inspired transformation of Venezuelan society.The story has a whiff of the old Soviet-era Pravda. Not because Romero is Chávez's mouthpiece, but rather the tone of the comments made by Venezuelan officials.
And, of course, Chávez's apparent fondness for democratic centralism.posted by Dan on 08.15.07 at 08:05 AM
