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.

A group of some 60 Venezuelan economists from across the country and from different generations and backgrounds, has met regularly in the past couple of years and now has brought forth a document explaining the reasons of the current emergency and outlining specific proposals on how to address the serious economic crisis the country has plunged into over the last three years.
