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.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
