"Do not misinterpret sadness with weakness." These were the words uttered by Venezuela's National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello, expressing the support given by opposition deputies, whom Cabello told that President Hugo Chávez's health conditions "give us strength and impetus; they will help us to continue in good times and in bad times."

The Congress Speaker also welcomed the presence of the deputies and pointed out that the special session was not aimed at discussing the temporary or permanent absence of the Head of State, but at granting him permission to recover from this disease.
