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.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
