PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION

US: On January 10, the decision should be "free, fair and transparent"

US State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Washington is a mere observer of the political situation in Venezuela. She added the debate concerning President Hugo Chávez's no-show on January 10 for his inauguration, "must take place peacefully and without violence from any of the sides"

The United States said on Tuesday that the issue of what should happen on Thursday if President Hugo Chávez fails to appear to take an oath for his new mandate is something that the Venezuelans themselves should solve. But she stressed that such a decision should take into account "all" the sectors and avoid the use of violence.

"It is an issue that Venezuelans must decide in a way that includes all voices in discussion," said Nuland, who insisted again that for the moment, Washington is only observing the situation, reported DPA.

Of course, she added, such decision should be taken in a "free, fair and transparent way that ensures equal political conditions in Venezuela." "We are concerned that all voices are heard," she said.

In this sense, she also stressed that all discussions "should happen peacefully and without violence from either side."

For now, she said, the US Embassy to Caracas has not issued any warning ahead of the demonstration convened by the Venezuelan Government on Thursday in support of Chávez in Caracas. She said Washington continues to monitor the situation.

Nuland said the United States has no other information than what has been disclosed publicly about Chávez's health. "We wish him a quick recovery," she said.

Gagging Twitter users

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
