CHÁVEZ'S HEALTH | The Government is to "continue"

Venezuelan VP: Medical team to decide when the president will be sworn in

The Venezuelan vice-president remarked that if Chávez's constitutional permission is extended after January 10, the Constitution shall govern. Should that be the case, Hugo Chávez may be sworn in by the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ)

After attending on Monday a special Mass for President Hugo Chávez's health recovery, Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro reaffirmed that in the event that President Hugo Chávez is unable to attend the sworn-in ceremony scheduled for January 10, "He is very likely to be sworn in at the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ)."

Notwithstanding, Maduro did not respond whether the TSJ would travel to the Venezuelan Embassy in Havana, Cuba, where the leader has been taking rest since he underwent surgery on December 11. The vice-president remarked that the president would be sworn in whenever his medical team or Chávez himself decides.

In an attempt to justify the possibility of postponing the swear-in ceremony, Maduro claimed "continuity" to the Government's leadership.

In reply to the question of whether the TSJ would travel to Cuba, the vice-president said, "We cannot prompt speculations. We must rely on certainty; that is, that the president has been granted a constitution permission (given by the National Assembly).

Maduro stated that if the permission given to the Venezuelan leader before he left for Cuba is extended (after January 10), then the Constitution will govern.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
