A referendum on convening a Constitutional Assembly was held in Venezuela on 25 April 1999.[1] Voters were asked two questions;

  1. Should a Constitutional Assembly be convened?[2]
  2. Do you agree with the President's suggestion of how the Assembly should be elected (each voter having ten votes)?[2]

Both measures were approved, with 92.4% in favour of the first question and 86.5% in favour of the second. Voter turnout was 37.8%.[2]
