Venezuela's election board head said on Tuesday it was preparing to hold voting for the new controversial constituent assembly in July and then hold delayed regional elections in December.

Venezuela's unpopular President Nicolas Maduro earlier on Tuesday vowed to push ahead with a new Congress to rewrite the Constitution, despite dissent within his own ranks and major protests in the OPEC nation convulsed by nearly two months of unrest.
