Referendum to Approve the Constitution

Here is one of the two questions to be asked on January 25, 2009 about the new Constitution:
¿Esta usted de acuerdo con refrendar el texto de la nueva Constitución Política del Estado, presentado por la Asamblea Constituyente y ajustado por la Comisión especial de Concertación del Honorable Congreso Nacional, que incluye los consensos logrados en el diálogo entre el Gobierno con los prefectos y representantes municipales sobre autonomías, incorporando el resultado de la consulta sobre el artículo 398 a ser resuelto en este mismo referéndum y que la misma sea promulgada y puesta en vigencia como nueva Ley Fundamental del Estado boliviano?
Do you approve the text of the new constitution, as presented by the Constituent Assembly and adjusted (amended) by Congress, which include the agreement of the dialog between the government with the prefects and municipal representatives, and incorporates the result of the referendum regarding article 398 to be resolved in this same referendum, and that the new constitution be promulgated and designated as the new fundamental law of the Bolivian state?

Sorry, the question is enormous, but that is the way Spanish is used. Though, some referendum questions in English are not so different.

I got this from Fides.
