Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez's health condition is "stable," reported on Wednesday night Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas.

In a two-minute obligatory simultaneous broadcast, the minister read out a short communiqué, as instructed by Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro. It was briefed on the medical progress of the Head of State, who underwent in Havana, Cuba, a "complex" surgery that lasted over six hours.

"The patient is in stable conditions in his process," the notice reads. The post-operative stage "is complex as well," it added and urged the "Venezuelan people and fellow peoples to accompany the president with their prayers and expressions of solidarity which, for sure, reinforce him day after day."
