Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro promised to rewrite the constitution before region elections in December. The unpopular leftist president signed a document on Tuesday that establishes the requirements for electing members of a “constituent assembly” that will overhaul the constitution.

In the recent months, anti-government protests in Venezuela have left at least 50 people dead.
