Communication minister: The only incumbent president is Hugo Chávez

"The fact that the President of the Republic is taking a sick leave, as provided for in the Constitution and unanimously authorized by the National Assembly, and that he has bestowed some of his powers on the vice-president is not a reason to disavow his incumbency and tenure," said Communication Minister Ernesto Villegas

Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas admonished Globovisión television channel in a letter for describing Nicolás Maduro as "acting president," executive vice-president and foreign minister.

"The only incumbent president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is Hugo Chávez, the winner of the October 7 vote, when he was re-elected with 8,191,132 ballots for the 2013-2019 presidential term," Villegas said in a letter to Globovisión via his Twitter account, Efe reported.

Villegas described as "unacceptable the fact that a broadcast licensee that exploits a portion of the radio-electric space that belongs to the Venezuelan people affords to issue a formal communication with such nonsense."

According to the minister, the private television network, which maintains a strong critical line towards the government, sent a communication calling Maduro "acting president." President Chávez bestowed some of his powers on Maduro and designated him as his candidate in case his health condition prevents him from taking office again as President of Venezuela, a position he has held since 1999.

"The fact that the President of the Republic is taking a sick leave, as provided for in the Constitution and unanimously authorized by the National Assembly, and that he has bestowed some of his powers on the vice-president is not a reason to disavow his incumbency and tenure," said Villegas in his letter.

Often times heralded as "the best cocoa in the world," a passion for quality dating back to the sixteenth century has made Venezuelan cocoa growers to enjoy high prestige at international level and their product to be among the most sought-after in the world.
