Communication Minister: Chávez is in "progressive, favorable" recovery
Ernesto Villegas disclosed that Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez developed bleeding during the surgery
Venezuelan Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas read out in obligatory simultaneous broadcast a press release from the national government with regard to President Hugo Chávez's health condition. The Venezuelan leader underwent an operation in Cuba to counter his cancer.
President Chávez is in "progressive, favorable recovery." However, "a prudential time due to the complex surgery" will be needed, Villegas spelled out.
The minister added that during the surgery, the Head of State suffered from bleeding, which was timely controlled with corrective measures.
The president, he broke down, should follow specific treatments "for his health full recovery."
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
