Venezuelan bishops encourage voting ‘without fear’

.- The leadership of the Venezuelan Bishops’ Conference issued a statement on Friday in anticipation of the Feb. 15 vote on a constitutional amendment to approve indefinite reelection for the president.  The bishops encouraged Catholics to vote “without fear” and with “a conscience for the country,” calling on election officials to guarantee transparency in the vote.

“Let us avoid violence and disorder which endanger peace and peaceful coexistence among citizens. If there are complaints or protests to be made, let them be done through the international channels,” the bishops urged.
