Venezuelans divided on referendum over disputed Essequibo territory Venezuelan citizens answered yes or no to five questions that were unanimously approved by the CNE and subsequently endorsed by Venezuela's Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ). The five questions were: 1. Do you agree to reject, through all legal means, the fraudulent imposition of the Paris Arbitral Award of 1899 that seeks to deprive us of our Guayana Esequiba? 2. Do you support the Geneva Agreement of 1966 as the only valid legal instrument to achieve a practical and satisfactory solution for Venezuela and Guyana regarding the controversy over the territory of Guayana Esequiba? 3. Do you agree with Venezuela's historical position of not recognising the jurisdiction of the International Court of Territorial Justice to resolve the territorial dispute over Guayana Esequiba? 4. Do you agree to oppose, through all legal means, Guyana's attempt to unilaterally assert control over the ocean pending delimitation, illegally and in violation of International Law? 5. Do you agree with the creation of the state of Guayana Esequiba and the implementation of an accelerated plan for the comprehensive care of the current and future population of that territory, including, among other things, granting citizenship and Venezuelan identity cards?
