Bolivian and Uruguayan presidents to visit Venezuela on January 10
Confirmations from the presidents of Ecuador, Colombia, and Brazil are still pending. The Ecuadorian Foreign Minister will be traveling to Venezuela, though
Bolivian Communication Minister Armanda Dávila confirmed that Morales, who visited Chávez on December 22-23, would be visiting Venezuelan to attend the events.
Meanwhile, permission has been granted by the Uruguayan senate to Uruguayan President José Mujica to "support the Venezuelan people and Government."
Although Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff will not be attending the event, according to Foreign Affairs Advisor Marco Aurelio Garcia, confirmations to attend the ceremonies from the presidents of Ecuador, Colombia, and Brazil are still pending. Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño will be traveling to Venezuela, though.
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.
