I found the following article in a Brazilian newspaper (in Portuguese):
From what I can understand it says that Venezuela will go from the "-4
hour GMT" to the "GMT-4,5 hour time zone" on 2008-01-01. I am not sure
if they will revert at midnight or at half an hour after midnight (in
the old time zone).
It is a little bit confusing, because it says many places that they will
advance their clocks by 30 minutes (from UTC-4), which technically would
mean that they would enter UTC-3:30.
However, it says that meridian 66 will determine the new time zone, and
since 66/15=4,4 hours, *and* they have been in the 4,5-hour time zone
before, I think it is likely that they are going back to that time zone.
