Venezuelan VP: "We are very happy with Chávez's recovery"
The work carried out by the team of treating doctors in Havana "has allowed overcoming hard, complicated moments and consolidating a recovery that fills us with happiness"
Venezuela's Vicepresident Nicolás Maduro reiterated on Sunday that thanks to a "world-class" medical team, the health condition of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez "is consolidation day after day."
Maduro emphasized that as Christmas is a few hours away, the president's followers pray for him in his "battle for life."
"We are very happy to learn that the commander receives the prayers and that such prayers are consolidating the work of a world-class medical team, as it were, from the scientific, academic, practical and clinical viewpoints," the Vice-President affirmed.
"Here there is the convergence of knowledge that precisely has allowed overcoming hard, complex moments and consolidating a recovery that fills us with happiness."
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
