Venezuelan VP has had no direct contact with Chávez
The Venezuelan vice-president stated that the "treatment cycles" have been respected
"We have not spoken to him directly. As you may know, we deeply respect his treatment cycles. We will try to contact him this afternoon (Monday) and as soon as we hear back from him, we will pass on the information," Maduro stated when asked about the reaction of the Venezuelan head of State on the results of the gubernatorial election held on Sunday, when pro-Chávez candidates won 23 out of 20 governor's offices.
On Monday, the vice-president led the ceremony in commemoration of the 182nd anniversary of the death of Simón Bolívar, the Liberator of Venezuela.

Why did Gerardo come to Caracas? One day he took the decision, handed the car keys to his father, gave him his share of the cloth business they both owned in San Cristóbal and kissed his wife and two sons goodbye. "He told us he was going to continue fighting for Venezuela," the wife says. That was in mid-2013. He has been imprisoned since May 8, 2014.
