According to a poll by Hinterlaces, 54 percent of Venezuelans have full confidence that the National Constituent Assembly will successfully uphold the Constitution and safeguard their rights.

Respondents agreed that the ANC would protect social achievements, such as social missions achieved during the Bolivarian Revolution.

The research was revealed on the Jose Vicente Hoy program Sunday and was composed of 1,580 interviews which were gathered between July 4 to 20.

Some 61 percent of Venezuelans disagree “with those who say that the National Constituent Assembly will draft a new constitution to establish in Venezuela a communist government like Cuba.”

The ANC was installed on Friday in the Federal Legislative Palace, located in the capital of Caracas, after the elections July 30 in which more than eight million Venezuelans voted for the constituent members.

The large turnout was seen as a mandate for a peaceful solution to right-wing opposition violence that has plagued the country for more than four months.
