Chávez: "I wish we can have a good relationship with the Episcopate"
The Venezuelan leader talked about working hard to win next October 7
Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez reposed hope on his victory in the polls of October 7 after a meeting with Argentine Minister for Social Development Alicia Kirchner at Miraflores presidential palace.
At the end of the meeting, the Venezuelan Head of State had a chat with reporters from the National System of Public Media and referred to the need to "work on" the victory in the presidential election.
"Even stones cry out, we need to attain the victory and work on it day by day."
The president recounted his telephone conversation with Monsignor Diego Padrón, the president of the Venezuelan Bishops' Conference (CEV); in his own words, he cherishes a good relationship with the Catholic Church.
"I made a telephone call and greeted Monsignor Padrón (...) I was very pleased to greet him again and, furthermore, I wish we can establish a good relationship with the Catholic hierarchy and join efforts for the country."
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.
