This is great news – Venezuela voters have rejected the constitution promoted by Hugo Chavez by 51% to 49%.

This new constitution would have removed the law requiring Chavez to step down in 2012, and give him greatly increased powers.

He is accepting the result for now, but we’ll see given time whether or not he does hand power over peacefully.
