the referendum started from La Rioja officialdom took place. After knowing the results of the query in question, it was stated that the Governor of La Rioja, Sergio houses, you can apply this year for its re-reeleccion. With full counted table (899 on 907 enabled), the ‘yes’ that sought to achieve the amendment to the Constitution Act, 10,161 provincial and thus endorsing a new period of the current President, was enabled. The approval included a total of 69.104 votes (58,28%), while the “not” reaped 49.465 (41,72%) votes.

On the other hand the Challenger and null votes totaled 0.46 per cent (1291), the contested 0.18% (505) and 0.32% white (909). It remains to emphasize that the referendum, mandatory, was developed in 868 tables enabled in 204 schools in La Rioja.
