Venezuela: Election Board okays second phase of recall effort

It looks like the Election Board has verified the 1% signature requirement needed to allow the recall against President Nicolas Maduro to move forward. However, the council is now asking for a voter identity fraud investigation and has yet to set a date for the 20 percent of signatures needed.

The refusal to set a date is critical, as if the recall goes into 2017, Maduro would be succeeded by his VP. More on all of that here.
