Venezuelan National Assembly Speaker Diosdado Cabello on Tuesday before parliamentarians read a communiqué from Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro informing that Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez will not attend his inauguration ceremony on January 10.

Maduro said in the letter that Chávez's medical staff ordered to extend his post-operative recovery period. He added that the Head of State requested him to inform Venezuelans about his current situation.

The inauguration, which marks the beginning of Chávez's fourth term in office, will have to be postponed, following the medical decision to extend Chávez's rest.

The communiqué noted that Chávez's medical condition is an "irrefutable supervening reason. Therefore, enforcement of Article 231 of the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is invoked, in order to arrange the corresponding swearing-in later, before the Supreme Tribunal of Justice."

The Venezuelan president is under medical observation in Havana, Cuba, after undergoing his fourth surgery for cancer on December 10.

The behind-the-scenes of the events of April 11, 2002

Alarmed because of the emotional breakdown suffered by his ally and his destiny; Fidel Castro requested asylum for deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in Madrid back on April 11, 2002. "The story had been much darker and more entangled than what some people's imagination has wanted to believe in and disclose," former Spain's President, José María Aznar, upholds in his autograph book published by late 2013.
