Good, but it is still unclear if they can both collect enough signatures fast enough in the second round and if the corrupt Supreme Court will let them.

Yup, the sad part is that Venezuela's checks and balances against a powerful executive branch arent working. It will be an uphill battle before they can legally oust Maduro.

The second step in the recall process has been done before, in 2004
