Speaker of the National Assembly (AN) Diosdado Cabello convened a special session of the Venezuelan Congress Sunday at 10:00 am to discuss the sick leave of absence requested by President Hugo Chávez to travel to Havana, Cuba, to undergo a new cancer operation.

Chavez announced late Saturday that he would travel Sunday back to Cuba for a new surgery to remove newly detected cancer cells in the area where he had a cancerous tumor last year.

Cabello talked with state-run television channel Venezolana de Televisión (VTV) few minutes after the president's announcement. "This is the Chávez we all love. He has been with us through thick and thin, and has given us life lessons."

"We have faced many tests throughout this process. Fortunately we had the leadership, presence, and personality of Chávez," Cabello stressed, adding that he was confident that Chávez would recover. The AN Speaker rejected speculations about the Venezuelan president's health.
