The choice of the referendum shall be governed by the Organic Law of Electoral Processes, and Resolution No. 070327-341 of the CNE, published in the Gaceta Electoral No. 369 of April 13, 2007.

What is peculiar is that Article 200 of that resolution establishes three requirements to be revoked presidential term:
─ The number of participating voters on election day must be of at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the total electorate.
─ The number of votes in favor of revocation must be equal to or greater than the number of votes of the voters who elected revocable official, in this case, 7,587,579 votes.
─ The number of votes in favor of revocation is greater than the number of voters who voted against the recall.
If the revocation of the mandate is carried out before January 10, 2017, proceed to new presidential election (Article 233 of the Constitution). After that date, the period end who occupies the position of Executive Vice President.
