President Chávez vows to return soon
The Venezuelan Head of State promised not to lose track of destabilization plans
President Hugo Chávez reported on Monday that he would return to Venezuela in the coming days.
He vowed to "participate gradually in the election campaign." Chávez gave the news in Havana, Cuba, during a telephone call aired on state-run TV channel Venezolana de Televisión (VTV). The Venezuelan president added that he has been revising the memorandum accounts received from his staff.
In this respect, Chávez informed on the approval of VEB 800 million (USD 186.05 million) for the purchase of total assets of Café Madrid, a coffee roaster that was expropriated by the government. The money will be provided by a loan granted by the National Development Fund (Fonden) and some state-run banks.
With regard to Venezuela's domestic situation, Chávez said that his government never loses track of the destabilization plans which, in his view, "have always been in the hands of the Venezuelan bourgeoisie."
Chávez posted a message on his Twitter accounts on his approval of USD 279.07 million for housing subsidies and USD 280 million to double electricity power in Margarita Island.
Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
